cURL does not display request or response headers by default, instead displaying only the HTML contents.

To display only the response header, we can use header-only mode in the cURL request.

Here’s how you do it:

curl www.dhairyashah.dev -I

or you can use, --head

curl www.dhairyashah.dev --head


➜  ~ curl https://www.dhairyashah.dev/ -I
