    In what way? I know in the past you could not take a backup from a newer version of sql and restore it to an older version of sql server (2000 to 7). Syntatically? I imagine if you do not use the new feature 2005 you should be OK. You need to supply more info.

    In most cases, you can just script out the database using SQL 2005's Managment studio, then run that script on the webhoster's server. This is provided you don't use any of the new features, of course. Getting data over to him could be by bcp out/in, DTS, or a custom program to import the data.
