Hey,

I usually insist that clients either give me direct access via FTP, or that I host the site myself. My advice to you though would be to bill the client according to how much time it takes. If a 5 minute edit is now taking you an hour because of having to go back and forth between a 3rd party then I’d bill him for an hour. You could explain to him that if he chooses to host the site with you (if you offer that as part of your services) then the time it would take to make edits would greatly decrease, then that might persuade him to do so.

Cheers!

John
