Sure - there's no problem supporting this, when you write the code to connect to a database, you just make it configurable for which host name to use - i.e. which database to connect to.

The only challenge I can see is that "user login" generally requires a database to do authentication (some way to recognize the user - e.g. they enter username + password and you verify that it matches).  You will either need one central database for that authentication - or some way to map from the username to which database to use.
