    I need to set up a server, which IP will be inserted in Cloudflare, and all the request will be sent thru that IP to the main server, can this be achieved?

    I have a site which barely receives any abuse at all, (1 in past 2yrs) and the server was shutdown due to that abuse, now i have another VPS which is not giving me problem with abuses, so i wanted to use that VPS IP in cloudflare instead of the real IP, can i do this in anyway?

    A guide or anything?

    Thank you.

    Also, there are multiple domains, so i want an easy quick fix, like a simple forwarder instead of adding multiple domains in setting.

    Hi @sonuyos

    I'm not sure I fully understand by the statement:

    The way CloudFlare works is you point the nameservers per domain to the nameservers for CloudFlare, it doesn't work per IP address.

    For more information on how CloudFlare works I'd suggest you read about it on their site here: Cloudflare Support
