How to protect websites real address?

We have CloudFlare setup as a proxy and we CNAME to a wpengine.com website. Here is these setup:

mydomain.com (CNAME) - > mydomain.wpengine.com

CloudFlare protects any traffic going to Mydomain.com but it’s not protecting direct access to mydomain.wpengine.com. How do i protect that address?

The domain mydomain.wpengine.com is a subdomain of wpengine.com and therefore just can be controlled by the owner of wpengine.com. Unless you host this domain at Cloudflare you can not do this with Cloudflare.

If a domain is not hosted at Cloudflare, Cloudflare can not apply andthing to it, this must be done/configured at wpengine.com. So just contact the support of wpengine.com and ask them to restrict the access for mydomain.wpengine.com to solely Cloudflare IPs.

But the domains real address mydomain.wpengine.com is not getting exposed by Cloudflare as long as you proxy :orange: traffic.
