If you may want to get server details in Django then you can use the request object provided in the view function to get server details. The request object contains information about the current request, including server details.

Here are a few examples of how you can use the request object to get server details in Django:

  • request.META['SERVER_NAME']: Returns the server name.
  • request.META['SERVER_PORT']: Returns the server port number.
  • request.META['HTTP_HOST']: Returns the hostname of the server.
  • request.META['REMOTE_ADDR']: Returns the IP address of the client making the request.

Here is an example of how you can use these attributes to get the details in a Django view function:

from django.shortcuts import render

def server_details(request):
    server_name = request.META['SERVER_NAME']
    server_port = request.META['SERVER_PORT']
    hostname = request.META['HTTP_HOST']
    client_ip = request.META['REMOTE_ADDR']

    context = {
        'server_name': server_name,
        'server_port': server_port,
        'hostname': hostname,
        'client_ip': client_ip,

    return render(request, 'server_details.html', context)

This will pass the server name, port number, hostname, and client IP address to the template and render it. You can then access these variables in the template to display the server details.

<p>Server name: {{ server_name }}</p>
<p>Server port: {{ server_port }}</p>
<p>Hostname: {{ hostname }}</p>
<p>Client IP address: {{ client_ip }}</p>
