SQL Server Database and table structure prevent unauthorized access

Is there a way to prevent unauthorized access or even to view the table structure in a hosting server.

the hosting provider has DBA access to the db, so those people basically can see anything in your database (and you have no means to block that).

so, if it really has to be blocked to "anybody", don't "host" your database on a normal (web) hosting provider.

Aside of the hosting people that would have access to your server and implicit database, you should implement your own security model and you can read details about how to do that at the links below and I suggest and recommend create standard database role(s), then assign minimum rights on your DB objects to the role(s) and add user sql logins to the standard database role:

As you didn't mentioned what SQL server you are using please select the appropriate 200/2005/2008
