Why do I need to change my "naked domain's" IP address

When you use Incapsula, we want to hide your site's real IP address (to restrict direct access to web threats). To do this, it's not enough to redirect traffic from your naked domain to your www sub-domain, because an attacker can easily discover your naked domain's IP address (and most sites have their www sub-domain at the same IP address).

In order to totally "encapsulate" your site, Incapsula provides the forwarding service itself, and therefore requires that you route all requests sent to your naked domain to an Incapsula IP address.
