Meta is a small Nginx/PHP tool displaying some informations in order to debug or satisfy your curiosity.



  • /me will redirect to /<your-ip-address>
  • /<any-ip-address> will print informations obtained from databases located in the geolite2 directory
  • /emoji will print an emoji list
  • /<anything-else> will print IP, TCP, TLS and HTTP metadata

Domains have working A (IPv4) and AAAA (IPv6) records

You can test IP version connectivity by forcing it throught:

  •, which only have the A record
  •, which only have the AAAA record
