Somethings Never Change
In all likely hood if he used phpMyAdmin he would not be able to add the database himself as if the ISP has got a clue to what they are doing then they would not have given normal users permission to create databases.
You can have as many MySQL databases as you like, it has nothing to do with IP addresses, it sounds like they are trying to make more money out of you by selling you another hosting package.
