See ip without cloudflare

If the required steps have not been taken to correctly and a domain is not fully and securely setup behind Cloudflare, then it is surprisingly easy to find out the origin servers IP and access it directly, thus bypassing Cloudflare completely.

The FREE plan that most people use will only proxy http requests, so everything else such as FTP, email, SSH etc has to be set to not use the proxy, which is DNS only and signified by the grey cloud.

If you don’t do the things required to properly secure your server it’s not secured. There are different levels of security required by sites/users/companies and no product is a magic bullet to doing the things required to properly secure anything in every scenario.
