It honestly doesn't matter. I have multiple virtual hosts in 
/var/www/hostname that are considered untouchable by any user other then 
myself. I also have other virtual hosts that are for users that are all 
located in /home/username/webpage.

I think as long as you decide how you want to do it and stick with the 
scheme, you should be fine.
