When I login to my account under DNS it says:
“Make sure all A, AAAA, and CNAME records pointing to proxied records are also proxied to avoid exposing your origin IP.”
Quite a few of the first records have exclimation points next to them are set to “DNS ONLY” and the warning says: “This record exposes your original IP. To fix this, change the proxy status”
Should I change each of the statuses with exclimation points to “proxied”?
Will this mess up my site?
Keep in mind that Cloudflare only proxies HTTP/S traffic. If that hostname is used for FTP, SSH, or Mail, it needs to be .
Hosting mail on the same server is going to expose your origin IP address. For FTP and SSH, I just connect direct to the IP address so I don’t go through Cloudflare.
So by having it as it is, nothing will be negatively effected?
If nothing’s broken, leave it alone. If hiding your Origin IP address is a priority for you, then start thinking about moving your mail to a different server.
