What is my IP address?

Multiple command line HTTP clients are supported, including curl, httpie, GNU Wget and fetch.

CLI examples

$ curl myip.nowhere.dk

$ http -b myip.nowhere.dk

$ wget -qO- myip.nowhere.dk

$ fetch -qo- https://myip.nowhere.dk

$ bat -print=b myip.nowhere.dk/ip

Country lookup

$ http myip.nowhere.dk/country
United States

$ http myip.nowhere.dk/country-iso

JSON output

$ http myip.nowhere.dk/json
  "ip": "",
  "ip_decimal": 911234982,
  "country": "United States",
  "country_iso": "US",
  "hostname": "ec2-54-80-87-166.compute-1.amazonaws.com"

Setting the Accept: application/json header also works as expected.

Plain output

Always returns the IP address including a trailing newline, regardless of user agent.

$ http myip.nowhere.dk/ip

Port testing

$ http myip.nowhere.dk/port/8080
  "ip": "",
  "port": 8080,
  "reachable": false


How do I force IPv4 or IPv6 lookup?

Currently not possible but I am working on a solution
