Thanks for the reply. > Overally, to be sure you should ask your 1&1 friendly tech support... ;) 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.
