Find a host site

I am new to MySQL. I have installed MySQL on my PC and I have written a VB.Net application to access the database locally. I want to test out the portability of my program so I signed up with a web hosting site and created the same tables on the web site.

I tried running my program and it couldn't connect to the web site's MySQL database. I tried connecting using MySQL admin on my PC and it didn't work. I contacted support at the web host site and they said they block outside access.

Is what I am asking to do possible? Are there any web hosting sites that allow you to connect to your MySQL database from your own PC using MySQL admin and a program like, C#, etc.....
