Looking for Web Host with SQL that ~ALLOWS~ remote DB access.

I'm gearing up for some major development. I know MSSQL and currently toying with SQL 2008 which is offered by eNom.com's hosting, but I just learned they do NOT allow any SQL Tools to connect from the outside! That means I can't use any design tools, can't edit with data grids, can't test stored procedures, etc etc etc. Totally unacceptable. Some functions can be done via a clunky web interface, but far too slow to work with during development.

Anyone else doing real development that has suggestions for a Windows platform web host?

I'm looking at HostGator.com next, and possibly Godaddy, but this time I want to confirm FIRST whether they allow remote database access.

Thanks!

Run your own server, then you can allow anything you like! I use Rackspace Cloud

It's a fantastic system, you can create as many servers as you like, you can delete servers at any time, and you only pay for what you use.

Biggest advantage is, it's *your* server, so you have full control over it.
