Would this be possible?

I am looking to set up a music related forum. I do not particularly want to go with one of these "Ultimate DDoS protected" hosts. I like to use more of a Droplet kind of style like Digital Ocean/Vultur. But I still want DDoS protection. So, this is where Cloudflare comes in... Would it be possible to completely hide my real host IP and let the attacks be dealt with at Cloudflare as opposed to me going with someone like Blazingfast?

Well, in that case, you can use any host you want and use a Reverse Proxying service like Cloudflare, Incapsula, BlazingFast etc...

If you don't have the CF business plan, they won't help for much besides hiding your IP, so kinda what you wanted I guess.

Exactly. If you are using the free plan of CloudFlare, they will reveal your Origin IPs after getting hit for a couple of times.

This had happened to me until I have upgraded.

Alright, so would it probably be cheaper in the long-run if I went with someone like Blazingfast? Instead of paying the normal hosting bill then reverse proxying services on top?

use CloudFlare and Upgraded to Pro plan you will have a better DDos attack protection.
