You can do this if you like - but then you'll most likely receive - what
some would call - an interesting night time visit from some tall guys in
dark suits, dark sun glasses.  

A much better approach would be to contact your hosting business
representative, ask them for their most recent security audit, if they
don't have one, refuse to provide one, or the one they provide is more
than 12 months old - take you business elsewhere.  Decent relatively
secure web hosting companies are cheaper than a dime a dozen these days.

Good luck.

Am I able to pen test or run a vulnerability assessment on my web
hosting company. I got the idea after reading this article.
