HTTP Header Check

Review the HTTP Headers from a web server with this quick check.


Reviewing HTTP Headers

A great deal of information can be gathered in a check of the HTTP Headers from a web server. Server side software can be identified often down to the exact version running. Cookie strings, web application technologies and other data can be gathered from the HTTP Header. This information can be used when troubleshooting or when planning an attack against the web server.

HTTP Header Check API

In addition to the web form above we offer a second way to access the http headers of any web site. Use our HTTP Header API, that will trigger our system to get the headers and display them in a simple Text based output. Access the API using a web browser, curl or any scripting language.

http://api.hackertarget.com/httpheaders/?q=http://www.google.com

This query will display the HTTP headers from www.google.com, you will notice that if the web server sends a redirect 301 or a 302 the system will follow the redirect and display each set of HTTP Headers.

The API is designed to be used in an ad-hoc fashion not for bulk queries and is like all our IP Tools is limited to 50 (total) requests from a single IP Address per day.
