    I have my sites and databases hosted at aplus.net. I can create ftp users but not database users. I'm being told that they do not allow any user accounts other than the main account to connect to the databases. I want to setup an account so that a contract programmer can work on the database and the website. But my account is the admin account for all of my domains, not just the one domain. This doesn't make much sense to me. Is it typical for web hosts to limit this?

    Some hosts do limit it.

    If this is just temporary, would it be possible to just create a second database for him to work with then copy everything over when its complete?
