Hi Ck lovers

What is WhatWeb ?

As the name suggests WhatWeb , It tell about What is the Website. WhatWeb recognises web technologies including content management systems (CMS), blogging platforms, statistic/analytics packages, JavaScript libraries, web servers, and embedded devices. WhatWeb has over 1500 plugins, each to recognise something different. WhatWeb also identifies version numbers, email addresses, account IDs, web framework modules, SQL errors, and more.

How to Use this:-

WhatWeb comes preinstalled on major linux distributions like backbox and kali linux.
So to start using :-

  1. Open Terminal and type WhatWeb it will show you a screen like this
2.Now to scan a website just simply type whatweb -website
