That depends on what exactly you mean.  There are a couple of ways to go
about this.  One is what you posted: an Engine element in server.xml
with numerous Hosts.  For this case each appBase should be the directory
where the user for the host is putting their webapps.

Another way is to use the user webapp feature, which lets you do things
like and served out of user1
and user2's public_html directories respectively.  There are other
configuration options as well: see the Host config reference section
titled User Web Applications at  For
this case, the appBase doesn't matter much: leave it as Tomcat's default
most likely.
