In case you have a few domains with different extensions and you need all of them to open the exact same site, you can have the website under one of them and redirect the rest. There are several methods to forward one domain name to another, like the so-called domain parking. If your hosting package permits it, though, it will be better if you host all 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, e mail addresses, etc., while with a parked domain you can't do any of those things. As an illustration, if you're building localized websites under various country-code Internet domain names, you'll be able to work on them, but in the meantime, people shall be redirected to the primary website.
