In case you have a number of domains with different extensions and you want all of them to open the very same Internet site, you can have the site under one of them and redirect the rest. There are a number of approaches to redirect one Internet domain name to another, such as the so-called domain parking. When your website hosting package deal permits it, though, it shall be better if you host all of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The main difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you may still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you cannot do any of these things. For example, if you're building localized websites under various country-code domains, you shall be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors shall be forwarded to the main Internet site.
