Addon domain vs separate shared hosting account criteria

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

Hi all,

Happy New Year!!

I will be starting 2 new websites ( each will have website / blog and forum parts)

What option would you choose in the following:
Option 1: buy shared hosting for now, make one website as the main domain and the other as an addon domain –> and if they overgrow, move them to semi-dedicated or vps either together or the one that will become too big ( cannot predict if it will be the “addon” or “main” website)

Option 2: buy 2 shared hosting accounts and separate each website on each account from the very beginning to avoid problems later on.

In general what are your criteria when you want to have separate hosting account for each of your website and when just use addon (or sub) domains?
