Your server's on the internet, malicious attackers try to attack what they can find.

For each user in the mysql.user table, MySQL needs to do a reverse lookup on each IP address trying to connect to it, then does a forward lookup on the returned domain to see if it matches the connecting address. This can be turned off if my.cbf/ini specifis skip_name_resolve.

Setting the bind address just tells MySQL to decline all non-local requests.
