Could you set up one hosting account with a bunch of aliases?

I am allowed to use aliases with my current host; however, is there any down side to that? Would that be any better than pointing parked domains.

What I was meaning was to set up one extra hosting account to use for the 301 redirect, and put all your aliases there. That would take advantage of type-ins but keep the risk of search engine confusion as low as possible.

I also wondered about this. I to have multiple versions of my site name and would like to use Godaddy's simple forwarding feature to my real site. Is this a bad thing to do SEO wise?

What if I just set up the index page of my site on another host with a noindex, nofollow meta tag, as well as, a robots.txt disallow. All the links from that page would point to my main site. I could then domain forward all the extensions and mispellings there. Would this be adequate to keep my main site in the se good books.

When I was in your situation, I used to just have my registrar do the forwarding for me.
After reading about 301s here I decided to take related names and create hosting accounts for them and just use 301 directs (at least for the more important ones).
I don't know if there is any proof as to one being better than the other, but I think the 301 by nature tells whatever visits it that the domain permanently lives at the new address (which seems like the correct thing to be telling people/robots/spiders).
