I wrap my springform pan with two layers of heavy duty foil (the really wide one, so there are no seems) then place that into the water bath.
I swear by the waterbath method, never had a cracked cheescake this way. I also cook low and slow and don't overbake (make sure that it only bakes to a maximum of 160 degrees Fahrenheit). This makes a super creamy cheesecake.
