How to avoid CloudFlare IP resolvers

Recommended Posts

There are tools out there that can give a person the true server IP behind your CloudFlare protected website, defeating the purpose of using CloudFlare.

This guide will show you what's necessary if you want to hide your domain name from being resolved.

1. Login to https://www.cloudflare.com

2. Click the gear icon and select "DNS Settings".

3. Observe this image:

You want to setup your records in this way. You can have whatever sub-domains you want for your domain as long as they are A records. You can use CNAME records for aliases and the MX records in the image. When you try to resolve a site like this, you get nothing useful as you can see here:

If you run your gameserver or any other server not protected by CloudFlare then your IP will be easily available to the public, even if you protect your archives to the extent that nobody can unpack them.
