In the CloudFlare DNS panel there is a cloud icon on the far right for each record that determines whether CloudFlare acts as a proxy for that subdomain/address. If it is selected then your droplet’s IP address will be hidden from visitors. If it is disabled the DNS record just points directly to your IP.
