    Is there any significant advantage to having each of your websites hosted on a separate hosting package? i.e. as opposed to having one hosting package and adding additional websites as add-on domains?

    Similarly, if there is an advantage, is it better to go with separate hosting providers for each website to obtain IPs in completely different ranges?

    Yes, but only if you are interested in the SEO benefits of Class C Ip SEO hosting. This way you can built up a network that can boost itself Offpage SEO wise.
    In short not very interesting for someone just starting out.

    There are many arguments for this approach. If you have several sites on one server and it goes down, then you have several sites off line at once.

    If you have several hosting accounts at different hosts you can trade backlinks between them. Example: I have three health related sites. They are all on different hosts for the above reasons.

    Thanks. I guess you'd have to calculate the benefit you received from the network you created vs. the cost of the hosting services. e.g. $5 per host times 50 websites = $250 per month - would the $250 per month translate into more than $250 in sales/adsense earnings/CPA earnings, etc. from higher rankings?

    Perhaps someone who's done it can share their thoughts?

    I think your missing the point here. You don't need to have EACH site on a different host. Just limited the amount you have on each host. Don't put all your eggs in one basket for many reasons. Down servers, hosting problems, etc.

    If you plan to inter-link same niche type sites, then using different hosts makes sense.

    Thanks. I understand the contingency planning / disaster recovery aspects. I was more interested in the SEO benefits and/or lack of benefits from using numerous add-on domains vs. separate hosting.

    You can just buy extra IPs if you're on a VPS. I tend to put all my decent sites with few others on the same IP, no more.
