I am trying to see, what is the web-server name of a particular website.


When I searched I got response as

Server: cloudflare-nginx

I know nginx and cloud-flare but I never heard a web-server named cloudflare-nginx.

Usually I get "nginx" as the webserver if website is powered by "nginx"

Can someone explain this Server: cloudflare-nginx means ?

Most likely, Cloudflare has a custom built Nginx webserver running their services which they've renamed to cloudflare-nginx.

You can change the server header output this way:
