I've got a hosted account with Godaddy and recently started to build an SQL based site. My first problem cropped up fairly quickly and I'm not sure of the best way to proceed. The basic problem is I'm not able to create further users so I can't limit privileges from the outset, which would be my preferred option. I can't actually see a way around this as I will need to work on the database at some stage and further restricting the sole account able to do it is not really practical. The only thing I can think of is to use prepared statements for all actions, which should be possible, but that doesn't feel like enough from a security perspective.
Any thoughts would be welcome
