Which is the better option:

  1. Mirror the two sites and maintain them both

  2. Redirect one to the other.


Neither. You should be able to setup your hosting in such a way that both domain names point to the same website. That way when people browse to domain-one.com they're not redirected to domain-two.com and when they click on a link, they're taken to domain-one.com/nextpage.html (for example), rather than the redirected domain-two.com/nextpage.html. Redirecting viewers can confuse them. You want them to only see one domain name to remember, not multiple.

This setup has the advantage that you still only have to maintain a single website, which eliminates the possibilty of errors.
