I guess you refer to share the sanme SFTP/FTP username/password, right?
If you are the only user that is going to manage them and you foresee no
problems with that policy, it should be fine. The number of users is
mostly a matter of management convenience (because different privileges
can apply to different users).

Yep, why not? A secure server is not just about how many users there are,
indeed, the less users -and the less services- the better, but choose a
very good password for it because is someone breaks it, it will have
access to all of the hosted sites ;-)
