Just a nit: I'd say the reason to use '127.0.0.1' instead of the empty
string is that a firewall might *not* be blocking your server.
The Python sockets module interprets the empty string as INADDR_ANY,
which means to bind to all available adapters including the loopback,
A.K.A localhost, A.K.A '127.0.0.1'.
