Multiple Sites under 1 account

Is having multiple sites under 1 account a bad idea? I’m doing a few different sites for some friends and I’m curious if I should have them all have there own hosting account or just put them under mine since I’ll be the admin for the sites.

Thanks for any input,

DreamHost allows for unlimited domains (and thus websites) to be hosted under one hosting account. Just make sure you follow their unlimited terms of service (which basically just keeps everything legit):


I create a new user for every domain because:

  1. I like everything neat and tidy
  2. It’s easy to hand off admin duties when they’re isolated from each other

In your case, I recommend #2 should your friends ever want FTP access.
