How to Host FTP Server Hide Your IP Workaround


Hi Janet

I can understand that you have hosted a FTP server and you need to hide the IP address of the server.

Let me help you with the issue that you are facing there, there is a simple process that you can follow to hide the IP address, but there are some drawbacks in the same process which I will discuss this further on.

First to hide the IP address, you need to use something like the DynDNS or the NO-IP.

But this does not totally hide your IP, it only cloaks it.

For example the DynDNS will give you an URL as follows,


Now let be talk about the drawbacks of the same, even if you do this people can still trace out the IP address by using a command like the “ping” command in Windows. So this does not hide your IP it only covers it up.

Hope this was helpful.
