Hiding Webhost's Nameservers in DNS

I am trying to learn enough to manage my own site using a VPS.

Is there some way to hide who my web host is in the DNS record? (Looking to make things more secure.)

Someone I know mentioned that I should get a "Virtual Name Server (VNS)".

Not sure that I understand what that is, or why it would benefit me.

Anyway, is there a way to make it harder or impossible to know who my web host is?

could hide it behind cloudflare?

I've done this and it's pretty effective for the most cursory "users".

It's free to use.

cloudflare was started by one of the guys who started Project Honeypot.
