I have a reseller account which gives clients CPanel and FTP access for
each domain they host, but the way I'm moving is towards a virtual
server where each client gets their own home directory, below which all
their domains are stored like so:




That way I can easily enforce quotas on accounts using the normal Linux
quotas and I can lock clients into their home directories in vsftp and
PHP (and other tools no doubt). It's also a doddle to add extra domains
because they're in a standard location, although it's worth pointing out
that I have only set this up on a test machine so far - no idea how well
it will work in practice. :)
