As with diversification of income streams I find it useful to diversify hosting, if one server goes down you don't want your whole income to be jeopardised.
Whether you use multiple shared hosting accounts or have multiple dedicated servers (or VPS's) is a question of economics. Factors you might consider include how many sites you have and how much time (or money) you want to spend administering servers.
Either way it's a hassle. I had a Win2003 VPS account with aspwebhosting(poor poor support - stay away) and they claimed my websites were eating 100% of the CPU at certain points of the day, blah blah blah. They gave me an ultimatum to buy a dedicated from them or get off their network. So, I got off their network. I did my homework at #*$! for my new provider.
