My server IP is '' (local), with APACHE, PHP, MYSQL

I use following php script for mysql connection:

//$link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'test', 'password');
$link = mysql_connect('', 'test', 'password');
if (!$link) {
    die('Could not connect: ' . mysql_error());
echo 'Connected successfully';


I use mysql_connect, with real IP, prepare for Remote connection, but it seem slow
- If I use command: $link = mysql_connect('localhost', 'test', 'password'); ---> connect very fast, complete immediately!
- But when I use command: $link = mysql_connect('', 'test', 'password'); ---> connection completed in about 5 seconds. --> very SLOW. (Press F5 to refresh is also slow!)

I also use mysql_pconnect to replace, but it's the same!
How to make connection faster with real IP ?
