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

Country lookup:

$ http myip.nowhere.dk/country
United States

City lookup:

$ http myip.nowhere.dk/city

JSON output:

$ http myip.nowhere.dk/json
    "city": "Unknown",
    "country": "United States",
    "hostname": "ec2-54-82-79-109.compute-1.amazonaws.com",
    "ip": "",
    "ip_decimal": 911363949

Setting the Accept header to application/json also works.

Plain output:

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

$ http myip.nowhere.dk/ip

Testing port connectivity:

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


How do I force IPv4 or IPv6 lookup?

IPv4 or IPv6 lookup can be forced by using the v4 and v6 subdomains.
