We are using Amazon EC2 and we have SSL through Cloudflare.
Our site is very slow and our freelance developer tells us the following:
“I can see a strange behaviour how our website is sever with the domain. Our amazon EC2 instance IP is (numbers) where the site is running, however when i ping the (domain name) it returns this IP (numbers) which i believe is coming from your domain DNS and you have setup some redirect rules which is causing the performance issues for sure.”
So, the first IP is coming from AWS and the second IP is coming from Cloudflare, after looking it up. The thing is, we are not using any redirect rules in Cloudflare and this IP he mentions does not show up in our DNS settings.
Our domain is registered via another provider but there are no DNS redirect rules over there either, and the IP he mentions is obviously coming from Cloudflare.
Anyone here who might have an idea what can be the solution?
