What You Need to Know

How does AraTika ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Work?

First you need to contact us and we'll set up your account in AraTika.

Once we have done that, you can add your domain​​ in AraTika. To do so you will need to validate you own the domain​​ by setting a DNS TXT record. Then you can set up the redirect​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ you want, and then point your domain​​ at AraTika.

Once that is complete, anyone who goes to your domain​​ will be redirected​​​​​​​​​​ to the location​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ you want. This can be to a domain​​ or a page on a domain​​. It's as simple​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ as that!

You can change the target of the redirect​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ at anytime simply by logging into your account and updating the target. 

This allows you to take the most control of how your domains​​ work.

Why is this needed?

  • Sometimes you want to have more than one domain​​ for your paetukutuku ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​.
  • Some systems will only allow a single domain​​ for a site.
  • Some systems will allow your site to load on multiple domains​​, but this will negatively impact your site search engine optimisation.

Registering a domain name​​​​​​​​ is only really useful if it takes a user to your paetukutuku ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​. Most domain​​ registration systems only allow you to register your domain​​ and to manage your domain​​ records. AraTika ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ allows you to take full control over your domain​​ without needing technical support​​​​​​.

What you need to be able to use this system:

  • You need a domain​​ that you own.
  • You need to be able to be add DNS records to your domain​​.
  • A basic understanding of how the internet works.
