/var/www should belong to you, i don't think any debian package will
clobber anything in there, if they do its a bug.  /var/www is set as
the document root for apache so its obviously natural for your site to
go there and be organized how you see fit.  the index.html file should
be replaced by your own.

just make sure its not owned by www-data.www-data!
