How can I mask my IP address when people access my website

By alcaloid90 ·
Hi all and anyone who can answer.

So I'm hosting my own website in a Windows 2003 Server and I can access it with my domain name that I bought with no problem, but in my website when I click on the links to go to a different page of my website, the IP address shows up, and so on for my other pages. I called my domain name supplier and they told me that it wasn't a setting they had control of, it was something I would have to set in my server. I want it to show my different pages like this, and etc...

Please let me know some guidance or help on how I can go about this. Thank you very much

Do not think it's safe

Hi, Thanks for your response.

I'd like to post my website link and I thought about it, but I don't think it would be safe for me since I have this problem with my IP showing up right there for you. Is there any other thoughts you have besides seeing the actual website.

After having a look.

If you want to hid yourself the best thing to do is use a free webhost, is one(Don't use your home internet to sign up or upload any files). The question I must ask is why would you want to hide your IP Address if you want to run a webserver?

BTW, someone can also learn your server name. & May have been an idea to try a free doman name which is what I'm doing at this time.

I should also ask, are you useing a firewall? if your not then you will be pritty open to the world.

To start with, we'll need to know what Web Server software your running.

Web Server

by alcaloid90 In reply to Details

HI. I'm currently using Windows Server 2003, and the Web Service and IIS from the operating system, which like I said, works fine except for showing the IP after clicking to the different pages. I don't have any special set ups in the web server, just regular .html pages. I have version 2.0 installed. I'm not using Apache or any independent web services application if that's what you are referring to. Let me know if you need any other specific details.

Other than for the URL looking good, anyone can get your IP address by doing a DNS lookup or a nslookup.

IP address

by jadams In reply to Other than

Yes, your IP address is public knoledge anyway. if you want proof go to any computer and open a command prompt. Then type ping or and you will get a return with the IP address.

One can also get it from a whois lookup. For instance: go to and lookup your website, or anyother site and you can see a great deal of information.

You cannot hid your IP address and still be on the internet. But that doesn't mean that you need to worry about it.

Now, as for why your page(s) are DISPLAYING your address, we need a bit more info. It would be helpfull to see your pages or at least the html code from them.

Alright, I'm going to trust you guys to help me, not break my server. Address is, let me know what you think

Well, your IP is sitting in a little box at the bottom of my browser ...

by OldER Mycroft In reply to Website

So, I don't even have to go and look it up.

Now apart from hiding your IP (which we all have now settled is a pointless practice) what is your main problem with your site?

Oh, and by the way PIXS is not a valid word (not even in a site page) since PIX is the plural of PIC.

Here is the problem......

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to Website

In your index FRAME file, you're pointing to frame src="". Consequently, all relative links will begin with that. Change that to your common domain name and you should be good to go. You might also want to check your navigation frame code to make sure it's all coded correctly too.

Hope that helps.
