Its not so much "no" as "not without their authorization".
If you're a large enough customer they may let you try. Be sure to
get the authorization in writing though in case your test causes
problems and they try to take legal action.
Unless you really know what you're doing I wouldn't recommend it.

absolutely not, this is called hacking. Pen testing is actively
exploiting a server, identifying a weakness exploiting gaining
access. Are you talking about scanning ports? Could you provide a
little more detail. If you mean pen-testing, then the answer is no.

Am I able to pen test or run a vulnerability assessment on my web
hosting company. I got the idea after reading this article. http://www.securitypark.co.uk/Security_article.asp?articleid=260173
