I dont think it's a security reason.
I think you heard that some where and what they meant was do not install the new wordpress blog or the new website in your root directory cause it will overwrite your website that is published for your main domain that is associated with your hosting account.
For example, your hosting account is for the domain "http://www.mydomain.com"
. The hosting is unlimited. Therefore you can buy domains only, point them to your hosting DNS and then addon the domain names. Then for you to install the blog or publish a website for each of these new domains you have to do so in their respective directories - these will not be in the index or root folder of your main domain which is "http://www.mydomain.com
". If you look in your server files these would be in "http://www.mydomain.com/public_html/newdomainname"
