Where is a Website physically located?

We were discussing about how the physical location of a webserver impacts the access speeds for end-users.

During this discussion, I stumbled upon a very good site InfoSniper which gives a very good idea of the physical location of the website.

Here is the tool if you want to test ride it!

I can't believe that most websites are only hosted in one location. I thought that surely they would be backed up on multiple servers. Maybe I should switch to amazon web services.
