Current Malpractice: Single Webserver

Source: vnunet.com

The article is titled "Boffins find way to fight spam scams", but that's misleading. The boffins in question are presenting at USENIX Security 2007, and their findings relate to websites advertised via spam. What they find is that the vast majority are hosting sites on a single server, as opposed to proxying through a botnet. Such techniques are prone to change in reaction to countermeasures, of course.
