Domain IP setup in Cloudflare different from the IP showing up inWhatsmydns.net

I set my domain IP to 130.211.138.188 in Cloudflare but when I check it in whatsmydns.net, the IP for my domain shows up as 104.31.64.139. It happens with all my domains I setup in Cloudflare.

Anyone knows why? Please see attached screenshots.

Hi @genius1,

As explained in the tutorial shared by @domjh, Cloudflare sits between your server and the visitors, so that bots (specially malicious bots) hit Cloudflare first, where they can hopefully be stopped. One of the important aspects of website security then is not revealing your origin server’s IP address, as it may be used to bypass Cloudflare. For that reason, I’d suggest you edit your original post to erase the IP address of your origin, as well as removing/editing the image that also reveals it.
