Yes, in what I consider the somewhat strange logic that is cpanel.
You can do one better here at DreamHost. You can set up your web directories however you want, but the default way is that (under the assumption that you only set up one unix id for your domains), all domains and subdomains are set up with their web directory set to subdirectories of your user home directory.
For example, if your username is darthaksarben, the following will be the default setup:
1. Your home directory will be /home/darthaksarben.
2. The web directory for scottieluvr.com will be /home/darthaksarben/scottieluvr.com
3. The web directory for vernsdidj.com will be /home/darthaksarben/vernsdidj.com
4. The web directory for blog.vernsdidj.com will be /home/darthaksarben/blog.vernsdidj.com
I think it's a model of simplicity and is very intuitive.
I think the oddness is only a result of having to live with the weirdness of the web directory setup for cpanel. The hosting for jenewein.us and vernsdidj.com are TLD (.com, .us) independent. There's no such thing as a "server with the extension of .com". The apache web server will serve any domain or subdomain that it's set up to serve.
There is some performance fanciness associated with glue records and having your nameserver having the same TLD as your domain, but that's beyond most people's need to understand.
