Obviously NO, it's like you want to hide your address from the courier you just asked to bring you the pizza...

Use a VPN for this, it's like someone is ordering pizza for you and bringing it to you after the courier delivers it to him.

You might want to give some additional information. DO you i.e. want to prevent users from browsing to https://www.whatismyip.com/ ? Or do you mean something differently?
Better question...why?

Yes:

1) why
2) hide from whom?

I need to hide the address due to repeated attack
The attack cannot be stopped from inside the server
The attack sends more than 40,000 packets
icmp attack type
The address causing the attack is usually variable like 181.214.147.132
or 181.214.147,146
I disabled the protocol ( udp-tcp-icmp)
Via filter input
The attack was not prevented though

Is useless hide the IP, still exist...
Ask your ISP another IP or ask your ISP to block the attack before reaching your device...

You have contacted the provider
He changed the IP address
This does not help stop the attack

@Techsystem:

"why" and "whom" are two question, and the "yes" is the confirmation that the two question must be answered.

Without context simply: use a VPN.
