Hi. When I go to websites that find websites IPs like https://ipinfo.info and paste the IP into the browser I get the " Error 1003 - Direct IP access not allowed" page. However when I go to my DigitalOcean’s droplet’s IP address I see the actual page’s content (example.com) . How would I set it up so for both the IP in the online IP finders and my DigitalOcean’s droplet’s IP both lead to the " Error 1003 - Direct IP access not allowed" page? Thanks
That’s two different situations. Cloudflare’s servers are configured this way. You’ll have to find a way to do this for yours. stackoverflow.com is a good resource for this.
Personally, I just firewall off anything that doesn’t come through Cloudflare’s IP addresses.
@sdayman Hey thanks. So if I setup the firewall what would happen if someone tries to search for the ip address of my droplet directly in the browser? What would they see?
If I just firewall off anything that doesn’t come through Cloudflare’s IP addresses, what will the end user see when they visit my DigitalOcean’s droplet’s IP? @sdayman
I would suggest a bit of patience. But if guaranteed response times are required, I am sure sdayman can provide a Paypal address
They would get either a connection refused or timed out message.
