I have rules in place to block certain countries

I have rules in place to block certain countries and it doesn’t look like it is doing that very well. I have a godaddy website. Why is it not blocking?

They probably do know my origin IP. I am being targeted. What can I do?

How can I make sure that the requests are coming from Cloudflare?

Have your hosting provider set up your origin server to only accept requests from Cloudflare IPs.

Unfortunately, it can’t be done. They are not able to put it on. Is there another way to make sure that cloudflare is actually stopping the addresses from other countries from accessing my site?

No, not when the traffic is bypassing cf and going directly to the origin server.
