Why can't I acces my website through its ip address after setting up CloudFlare?
I was able to access my website by putting the ip address of my droplet to the web browser. Some time ago I started using cloudflare CDN. Now I am not able to access my website with its ip. I only can visit by using my domain name.
I know that the point of using CloudFlare is not accessing the server directly through IP address. But I couldn’t get how CloudFlare can block access through droplet’s own ip address. I only pointed my domain name to their nameserver and give them my droplet ip.
Thanks in advance.
