Thanks for the reply.

Tried 1&1's friendly tech support but they were unable to help - actually
they were unable to understand what I was asking but hey, I'll figure it out
without their help.

Possibly yes - only from within its own network block or a bunch of
allowed hosts. At least I'd apply a setup like that to any machine
directly exposed to the web. My provider does things exactly this
way. Having a firewall somewhere in between you and 1&1 blocking access
to mySQL's server ports also might be an option. Overally, to be sure
you should ask your 1&1 friendly tech support... ;)
