So if the user's home directory contains their email and their web pages then
/home is the right place!
For bulk web hosting the easiest way to create domains is to create the
accounts in LDAP (or whatever other backend data source you use for user
authentication). Then you can have the FTP server create home directories at
login time (much easier than having the sign-up scripts create the
directories and has less security issues).
