Hey,

Is it still beneficial to have lot of domains which are redirecting to one website

For an example :-

xyz is my brand and I have xyz.com so should I buy xyz.net,xyz.org,xyz.io and other extensions.

Is it beneficial for my .com for more online presence?

Let me know what you guys think about this and if you're not able to understand it then please ask me again.

thanks :)

The main reason to do this is to prevent domain squatters in the future. Simply redirect the .net/.org to your .com property. If you are planning to build out a legitimate company I highly recommend you do this, along with any and all social media accounts ahead of launch. Unfortunately, you still get the occasional asshat that will register YourDomain(s).com or Your-Domain.com, etc.. I've had this happen quite a few times now, sad really.

I got the part that I've removed but what about this "Occasional asshat"?
Didn't get you!

I you want then focus on buying just .com/.net/.org and your country TLD. You will always see that someone bought your-brand.com/yourbrand(s).net

Also, if Google is your focus search engine and they ban your site/domain, you have another one to give them right away.
Same with Instagram profile link and other social networks. It can be beneficial. But also expensive if you don't use the domains.
