Field Description Example
Access-Control-Allow-Origin Specifies which websites are able to access the ressources. If there is none, the server should return *. Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *
Accept-Patch Gives the patch document formats accepted by the server. It implicitly indicates that PATCH is available on the Request-URI resource. Accept-Patch: text/example;charset=utf-8
Accept-Ranges Specifies the range requests accepted for a resource. Though the value is often bytes. none would indicate to the client not to try a range request. Accept-Ranges: bytes
Age Estimates the number of seconds since the answer was created by the server. The max value is 2147483648. Age: 8
Allow Defines a list of methods supported by the server. The client can try another but the server probably won't respond to it. Allow: PUT, HEAD, GET
Cache-Control Specifies often the duration a resource can be keep by the user agent without being requested again to the server. It is used to reduce the bandwith usage and loading time. Cache-Control: max-age=7200
Authorization Used by a user-agent to authenticate itself to the server. It contains the user agent's credentials related to the resource. It is often used after a 401 response. Authorization: Basic PAGFXUJC3GKM96Y8SGMUR4Y5GG==
Connection Specifies the options required for this connection. The close value informs the user agent that the connection will be closed after the request. Connection: close
Content-Encoding Informs the user agent which coding system has been used on the body content, and then which mechanism will restore the content accordingly to the Content-Type field. Content-Encoding: gzip

Content-MD5 Indicates the hash of the entity-body processed by the server. The content received is hashed too and compared to the value received to detect transfer issue. However it can't be used to prevent malicious attacks. Content-MD5: 098f6bcd4621d373cade4e==
Content-Range Indicates which part of the entity-body is in the packet. Due to the fact that the packet may not be received in the same order it has been sent, this information helps the user-agent to rebuild the server's answer in the right order. Content-Range: bytes 15862-19520/49022
