No, I don't think I am. You may be confusing a web space with 
a web site. Those are not the same thing.

are *not* two web sites. They are two web spaces.

And Joe and Jane are tenants of the site.

Yes, the content of those two web spaces are probably owned/managed
independently from the rest of the web site, but they are still
part of that web site, and the rights of those tenants of are dictated by the owner of the site.

But you are quite correct that a given server can host multiple sites,
and I will restrict myself in the future to speaking of sites, rather
than servers.
