My website is on a linux machine with the IP address 22.214.171.124
I have bought domain name from godaddy and updated my name server to cloudflare
When user enters my website url
www.mustafagroup.site , it goes through cloudflare proxy which adds an extra layer of security such as DDOS to my webserver
My question is what if the user types my ip address directly to access my website.
Does cloudflare proxy still get used? or what if attackers directly attack my IP with DDOS?
Does cloudflare proxy still protect my webserver from ddos?
If i am not clear please comment, I will reply back.
