Default user has no rights on his own home folder?

I create a user. lets say: peter
The user is for client1.

so i log into the server via username: client1user

now the home folder and everything is owned by web*-user (* stands for a number).

so my user cant change the local settings.

whats the idea behind this concept or did i do something wrong?

You mix up the usernames here. The username that you used to log into the website "client1user" is just a alias for the user "web*". See /etc/passwd and compare the user ID's. You user can change everything inside the web directory.
