You could review the extension Multi-language Parked Domains ( ... ed-domain/) for its suitability to your need.

Earlier, there use be an extension named Language Domains plugin in Joomla! Extensions Directory (JED). It is no longer listed in JED. It could not be found in the Vulnerable Extension List ( as well. You could review the extension found at ... ins-plugin). You could check with the extension's developer whether the extension is compatible with Joomla! 3.8.
