In case you have several domains with different extensions and you would like all of them to open exactly the same website, you may have the website under one of them and redirect the rest. There are various methods to forward one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your web hosting package allows it, though, it shall be better if you host each of the domains and create a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The real difference between the two is that while a domain name is hosted, you could still have content for it, create subdomains, email addresses, and so forth., while with a parked domain you can't do any of these things. For example, if you are building localized websites under several country-code domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but at the same time, visitors will be forwarded to the primary website.
