So our site has a lot of trouble with DDOS attacks, the most recent seemed to be bypassing cloudflare entirely and hitting the server directly - most likely the result of having our mail sharing the same IP as our htttp(s) traffic server.
To get around this, right now, we’ve taken down all our server-based emails and we’re just using gmail addresses.
My question is about e-mail forwarding - our domain name supplier (GoDaddy) has a service that enables you to set “forwarding addresses”, ie. an email that appears to come from your domain name, but which functions purely to forward to an already existing address.
Would using these effectively hide our server IP in the future? Or will we need to do something else?
