In reply to this question:
“Any tips on segregation for those of us that cannot afford multiple hosting accounts? I mean, I don’t make any real money with them; nowhere near enough to pay for separate accounts for each. Thoughts?”
Segregation requires that each site lives in its own space. It’s a lonely existence in there, but that’s the only way you are going to prevent others from stealing your stuff…
Hosts who offer cPanel/WHM or Plesk are a great way to start in segregating your sites into a centralized website management control panel. This does usually cost a bit more, but the benefit is less heartache, less stress and you’ll simply feel better for doing it.
Does pain have a monetary value?
Otherwise, I do recommend folks never host more than (2) WordPress installations within a single shared account. That’s a bit more expensive but far less problematic in the long term than hosting 20 websites in one directory (Ouch!).
