Usually, there's "localhost" which should always be there, and anything 
outside of localhost, which can either be a domain name or a wildcard or 
a combination. 

Things could behave differently depending on whether or not you have 
name lookups enabled for your MySQL installation. You might want to 
consider poking around in my.cnf and make sure you have all your 
settings in place to your expectations, so you don't run into other 
"gotchas" of this nature. 

 Database works? You are worshiped. 
 Database broke? You are fired!
