I want to hide IP address of my web hosting server? I used Cloudflare for my websites but when I check tutorials on the internet, they are still having ways to reveal real IP from a website. My question is, is there a way to hide IP address that tools can not find out?

You could always rent a VPS from a different provider, create a VPN tunnel between that VPS and your webserver, then run Nginx on the VPS and proxy the web requests to your web server over the tunnel.

I am also caring about this but get stuck at creating a VPN tunnel.

then run Nginx on the VPS and proxy the web requests to your web server over the tunnel.
Can you elaborate this? How to do it?

Couple options to create a VPN Tunnel. OpenVPN is the most widely used, you'd set one end as a server and one end as a client, plenty of guides online. Another option which is becoming more popular is Wireguard, which I haven't used myself but is supposed to be easy to setup. The end result is you'll assign some internal IP addresses to the VPN interfaces on either end (say 10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.2 for example). Any traffic going between those addresses is going over the encrypted tunnel, rather then the regular Internet.

Once you can ping across the tunnel, you'd install Nginx on the public-facing server and configure it to proxy traffic for your website to the 10.0.0.x IP of your webserver. This would be a standard reverse-proxy configuration and is well documented with a bit of searching.

HI,

You could set up a hosting account and use that IP of that server to proxy requests from your server.

I still do not see what the usefulness of doing something like this really is unless you are up to no good.
