Help What is the best way to hide public IP for VPS hosting?


Hi everyone,

I’m hosting a few websites for clients that I want to make publicly accessible. But I don’t want them to know my public IP. What are the best practices for hiding my IP? I need to share my IP with them because they need to set the A record in their domain company.

I’m currently running NginxProxyManager and Docker.

  • You can hide it behind F5 Distributed Cloud, Cloudflare, or any other cloud-based reverse proxy. Review your exposed headers, obfuscate your server header, and you are done.

  • You may mask your Internet Protocol address by using a proxy server.
    Make use of Tor in order to keep your IP address a secret, and
    Connect to a different network in order to alter it.
