What Does Proxied Mean

I’m new to Cloudflare and have a question about proxied DNS records.

We have an A record on the sssc.us domain. It’s name is semsdev. The IT is set to {IP redacted}, but when pinging semsdev.sssc.us, the name resolves to This does not seem right as our developers need this in their code.



This is intended.

The origin IP is hidden and visitors connect to Cloudflare addresses instead of your origin. Traffic is proxied (:orange: next to your DNS records.)

Can’t they use hostnames instead of hardcoded IPs?
