My preference is b)
If I assign more then one website to one use, why would I want more than one system user? This only complicates things for the end-user.

If a user needs more freedom he needs to be a reseller.

Please make it simple for the end-user!

So I definitely prefer option a)

For the directory structure:

Why not use "/var/clients/client[client_id]/[website_domain]/" also? It's much more human readable.
