I own the domains example.com and example.org from two different registrars.

The main site is hosted under example.org. What is the better method for getting visitors to each domain to land on the same pages?

  1. In the domain control panel of example.com I set to redirect domain to example.org, with 301 permanent setting.
  2. In the hosting control panel of example.org I add example.com as a parked domain (and change example.com DNS accordingly).

What are the advantages and disadvantages of each method?

Using 301 permanent redirects from one domain to the other is your better option.

In fact, "domain parking" won't achieve what you want at all. Parking a domain generally means that the registrar will put up its own page there. That page will generally say "coming soon" and have advertisements for the registrar's services.
