Cannot connect VPS to CF DNS

hi, trying to root a domain to my VPS IP address. it’s my first time using cloudflare so I might’ve missed something.

I’ve made the DNS, A record targeting the IP.
but the IP address seems to be different when I tested it.

the idea was that I’d log in to my VPS via SSH using the url instead of the IP address

That is Cloudflare’s proxy address.

For that, you’ll need to change the record from proxied to DNS-Only. The proxy only supports HTTP(S).

hm that’s what I thought, the IP changes as it passes through CP servers.

changing it to DNS only would make my domain vulnerable so I’d rather keep it. how can I use this url ( as my server ( hostname while keeping it https?
