    IP Masking


    How do you hide the IP address when someone is visiting your website. I used cloaking from my redirection client. However, people can still find out my ip by right clicking on the site and checking the url. For example it will show "http://123.45.678.9/Pictures/main.html". I would like it to show "http://www.websitename.com/Pictures/main.html".

    unless you get a re-routing account (slow and expensive, similar to a proxy), clients will always be able to get your IP address.
    for the browser not to display it, you need to get your own domain and simply link to that instead of the IP.

    First you need to register a domain, and then ask your ISP to point it to your webserver. They will then put an A record into their zone file which will contain the IP address of your webserver.. then you can use your new FQDN instead of the IP address
