In case you have a few domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open precisely the same site, you may have the website under one of them and redirect the others. There are a number of ways to forward one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package allows it, though, it shall be better if you host all of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, set up subdomains, email addresses, etc., while with a parked domain it's not possible to do any of those things. For instance, if you are building localized Internet sites under various country-code domain names, you will be able to work on them, but at the same time, people will be forwarded to the main Internet site.
