I want to hide my server's ip

Hello everyone, I have a vps hosted on my home,

I have several sites on that vps, and I would like to hide the full ip address of the server, is there any possibility?

All answers are welcome, I already use cloudflare, but if you look closely you can see the ip address of the server, and by default my physical address and I would not like this, thank you verry much :slight_smile:

Those are impossible to hide once they’ve been exposed. And if that server sends out email, then it’s impossible to hide.

The appropriate solution is to block all non-Cloudflare traffic to the VPS by dropping any connections that don’t come from the list at cloudflare.com/ips

Again, if that server does more than web traffic, you’re pretty much forced to expose your IP address.


verry good ideea but the ip was exposed alredy… :frowning: what do you think?

Best solution is to use cloudflare tunnel and lock down the incoming requests


“How do I protect my lock when the attacker has a key to it?!” - You don’t.

If you have access to ACL rules, then make your IP irrelevant by isolating your server to only relevant traffic; the alternative would be switching the IP.
Dropping packets from your server has the bottleneck of your CPU and public bandwidth that you have contracted with your host. Overall, a bad idea if the attackers have a somewhat robust botnet/server(s).

hey, but who said anything about the attacks?… the idea is that I don’t want anyone to know where the server is located because I don’t want to know the country of origin of the site. It’s not about something illegal, it’s just that I don’t want them to know the country where the site is hosted

Unless you’re going to move to another country, that ship has already sailed.
