HTTP Headers Lookup

What this HTTP Headers Lookup tool can do?

Checking the HTTP headers that the web server returns when requesting a URL. Showing the HTTP status code, web server information, content type, content-encoding, and other useful information.

The common HTTP status code:

  • 200 OK:The request was successful, and the response includes the requested content.
  • 301: Moved Permanently: The requested content is at another URL (specified in the Location header). Replacing the link with the new URL will improve performance.
  • 302: Found: Content is temporarily located at the URL specified in the Location header.
  • 303: See other: Content is located at the URL specified in the Location header. It has to be retrieved by using a GET method.
  • 307: Temporary Redirect:Content is temporarily located at the URL specified in the Location header.
  • 401: Unauthorized:Authentication is required to access the content.
  • 403 Forbidden: Access is forbidden.
  • 404: Not found:Resource was not found, or you do not have access to it.
  • 405: Method not allowed: The specified HTTP method is not allowed to use. The Allow header will show the methods that you can use.
  • 410: Gone:This is similar to 404, but used only when resource will not be found for good. The content is not only unavailable, but also the forwarding address is not specified.
  • 500: Internal server error: There is a problem with the web server, and your request was not handled.
  • 503: Service unavailable:The URL is temporarily unavailable.(Because of the overload or the maintenance)
