I have multiple websites and wanted to know if it is possible to hook multiple websites under one Cloudflare account and have each website have a different IP?
If it is possible to get a different IP for each domain hooked up to Cloudflare then what kind of subscription do I need to buy?

I am afraid it’s not possible.
They do change on the
nslookup from time to time automatically.
If you’re using the security features and options available to you, you’re safe to go
This tutorial explains why, when doing a DNS lookup on your domain, you may see IP addresses that are different to those you specified in your DNS records.
What are the addresses I see?
The addresses you see will likely begin 104. and/or 172. and they are Cloudflare’s IP addresses.
Why do I see these addresses and not the IP that I set?
If you have Cloudflare proxying your site, i.e. you have the DNS record set to
, then because the record is proxied, Cloudflare’s IP will show instea…
If your site is proxied through Cloudflare, then a lookup on your domain will return one of their IP addresses.
The Cloudflare IP will likely show as being in the US, however, this does not mean your traffic will be routed to the US. Cloudflare utilises an anycast network so your traffic will likely go to a server nearer to you (depending on your ISP’s peering).
You can determine which Cloudflare data center your requests are going to by adding /cdn-cgi/trace to the domain name. E.g. go to exa…
Thank you for asking.
I’d say it’s rather a question from which server are your Website visitors being served?
When doing a DNS lookup of a proxied (orange cloud) hostname or a domain using Cloudflare, the returned IPv4, and IPv6 addresses would likely show as being in the US, however, this doesn’t mean you and your traffic are routed through the US.
Cloudflare is an anycast network and has many servers around the World, meaning the network/web traffic would go through …
I understand that there is no possibility that each domain connected to the Cloudflare panel simply has different DNS entries?
In case you set up two other accounts then usually each domain has different DNS entries.
You can subscribe to an enterprise account and it’s an additional $5k per month per unique IP you need on top of the base plan.
If you want unique nameservers you can set up vanity nameservers by upgrading each domain to business.
