Can I use more than one service on the same domain?

You can use a domain name for a website, or multiple websites, and email, and a variety of things you might want to do.

Website and email hosting

The most common combination is to have a website (or blog, portfolio, online store, etc.) and email service, e.g. Squarespace and Google Workspace (formerly G Suite). Adding email hosting to your domain will not affect any website hosting settings, i.e. the required A, CNAME, MX, etc. DNS records.

You can point both a website and email service to the root domain as long as there are not duplicate records. For example, if you set up your website for the root domain with an A record and a CNAME record, you can then add an email service that has MX and TXT records. That's fine, because the records are all different.

Below is what the DNS records for a Squarespace and Google Workspace install would look like. Lots of records, but they all work together just fine.

All of our App Marketplace one-click installs for email hosting providers work with our partnered website services. If you are not sure if the setup you want to use might cause a problem, just let us know. We're happy to help.

Website and blog using subdomains (or portfolio, or online store, etc.)

If you have a website for your main domain, e.g. (www.) and want to add a blog service, for example, you would need to add a subdomain, e.g.

Note that subdomains and pages are two different things. A page URL would look something like That cannot be set up in your iwantmyname dashboard. That would have to be created in your website hosting account.

To set up a subdomain with a new platform or service, login to your iwantmyname account, and click on the domain you want to set up in your domains dashboard. From the next page you can use the search field to go to the install page for the service you want, e.g. Squarespace, Cargo, etc. Or you can browse our Marketplace.

Once you get to the service's install page, click on or add on a subdomain. Then type in the name of the subdomain you want to use in the text box that will appear, e.g. blog, shop, etc. Then click the green Install button to install the records you need to connect your subdomain to your hosting service.

Once that's done, give it a couple of hours at least for propagation time, and then you will be able to complete setup in your hosting account as well to get the site with the subdomain online.

install a subdomain

This is the same setup you would use to set up a portfolio subdomain, for example. Or an online store if you wanted You can add as many subdomains as you like, connected to as many services as needed with your domain.
