Basically No.
Your username is fixed and cannot be changed.
You can however change your password as often as you like.

Why not get your friend to design the site on his PC and then put the finished product on a CD that you can then use to upload from your machine?

The same username & password is used for the portal, acessing your www & cgi webspace and collecting email for your default mailbox. So if you give him the details he will have access to all of those services.

There is no way to have a separate name/pass for just your webspace and changing your password, it will still be used for all the services I listed above.

Just one item incorrect there Peter.
You can have a seperate password for your CGI space other than the one you use for other services.
However I fully agree that it's not a good Idea to give out ANY password, even to friends :?
