If you have a website or have interest in owning a website, you might have heard about an IP address one time in your life. Simply, the IP address means that Internet Protocol Address, which is a numerical label that indicates where your website is located.

Recently, people have been easily able to discover your original IP address just by typing a one-line code or using a free software. With everything now easier than before, your website is more likely to be a hacker’s target. This topic is something that many have asked about, especially for those that are new at protecting their websites, so here’s how Cloudbric helps you to protect your website by hiding your original IP address:

Technically speaking, web traffic has a special port so that web request transfers the information between web application and web server. We can think of it as a channel. Cloudbric is set a filter in this channel allowing only legitimate traffic to visit your website.

In order to set this filter – or the Logic Analysis Engine of Cloudbric – your current DNS records need to be changed to Cloudbric’s DNS records. By changing the DNS records, all of your traffic will first go through our server, and then only verified traffic will reach out to your original web server. Changing your DNS records means that your website visitors are rerouted to Cloudbric IP, instead of going straight to your original IP. This allows Cloudbric to act like a shield bouncing off all harmful access requests from all types of hackers.

This explains what it means by Cloudbric is a proxy service. Cloudbric lets you hide your original IP address and have a guard at the front. Please email us at support@cloudbric.com if you have more questions.
