New to using CloudFlare, and have a hosting server that I want behind the CloudFlare CDN. Looking to use a reverse proxy to point to the public IP of my server but I don’t need a FQDN (i.e. example.com). How do I go about adding a pubilc IP (with dynamic dns?) or a subdomain to CloudFlare and set up a reverse proxy to point to that public IP?
I did some extra research and it looks like Reverse Proxy is an Enterprise solution only. Given that information, how can I use Cloudflare to protect my back-end server with the ‘Free Plan’? Super new to CF so if anyone could point me toward a few pages to read I’d greatly appreciate it.
To clarify, I have a back-end server that hosts content and has a public IP. I want to use CF to allow access to the server without exposing the IP. HTTPS, FTP, and potentially VPN sockets are what I need to host.
Thanks in advance for any information / links provided.
