No not really... but that depends on who you're referring to. For
people like yourself and I, that's pretty normal.

For everyone else that would be the set of people that user linux, use
apache, have user accounts on their apache box,  and want their users
to have person web spaces that are actually on the filesystem as
opposed to in a blog. That's a quickly shrinking number.

Directories in /var/www and /home/*/public_html would have been ready.
But you, like myself, used a dir name other than public_html.
