Not really, every time you visit a website the server routinely records all that information in its log.

You were driven to the site in your link so that you might consider buying the software that is advertised there. Unless you have some compelling reason to hide your IP (and very few people do) you should just forget it.

Well, that was simply an advertisement to scare you into buying their product. Why buy theirs when you can hide your IP from all websites for FREE?
