We have a website and want to avoid revelaing ip address and that’s a must for us.
So recently we tried to use Cloudflare for hiding ip and set all proxy status to dns only. Upon checking on internet (hostingchecker.com & Similar sites) it still is revealing hosting details including ip address.
But when we turned on proxy status to proxied it did hide everything.
My question is can’t we hide ip just with dns only option ? Additionally please help us other ways of hiding ip.
No, it shows the origin IP and it’s shown when doing a lookup.
I am afraid your IP was already exposed to some online scanning services and similar like DNS history for your domain name.
You could use some relay server to “hide” your real IP, but I doubt as it would end up in some of the e-mail headers (if not being removed) - which could cause possible issues to your e-mail not being delivered or marked as a junk one.
Or some solution as a proxy/relay server of JavaPipe infront of your origin (for specific/needed ports) for example:
Otherwise, I would suggest using Cloudflare Business or even Enterprise plan for SMTP including the Cloudflare Spectrum service:
