Grabbing the HEAD info of a website

Getting the HEAD of your target's website is an important part of recon, as it will tell your what server they are using, and some other interesting information.
I find using curl to be the quickest way to do this.

Open the terminal, then type: curl -I <TARGET>

For example: curl -I imgur.com

Now, the information of the HEAD is displayed as seen in the above image.
The are a few ways to grab the HEAD info, but I personally find Curl to be the best option.
Curl is a great tool that is well worth mastering. Expect more in-depth tutorials on Curl to come soon.
