When you have a lot of domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open exactly the same website, you can have the site under one of them and forward all the rest. There are different ways to forward one domain name to another, among them the so-called domain parking. If your hosting plan permits it, though, it will be better if you host each of the domains and set up a URL redirect, not a domain redirect. The difference between the two is that while a domain address is hosted, you can still have content for it, set up subdomains, e-mail addresses, and many others., while with a parked domain you are unable to do any of those things. For example, if you are building localized websites under different country-code domain names, you shall be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people will be redirected to the primary website.

You will only have to pick a domain name or a subdomain via a drop-down list, to pick the folder in which the redirection shall be set up (the root folder or a subfolder), and then to type in the URL to which the website visitors should be redirected to.

Any forwarding you create could be deactivated from the same exact section of the CP, if you don't need it anymore.
