HTTP Header

Threaded View
I check the HTTP Header Viewer on my sites. Sites that are perfectly
fine in HTTP Version 1.1 - producing a 200 message.

However, from time to time I get totally different results when
running the same test on HTTP Version 1.0 or 0.9.

I am concerned that if a site produces a 200 message in version 1.1
like this:

HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Date: Wed, 21 Jan 2004 21:03:19 GMT
Server: Apache
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html

But produces a 401 message in 1.0

HTTP/1.1 401 Authorization Required
Date: Wed, 21 Jan 2004 21:04:17 GMT
Server: Apache
WWW-Authenticate: Basic realm="Webteam"
Connection: close
Content-Type: text/html; charset=iso-8859-1

Or give information about the virtual hosting company when I use GET
(in Version 1.0 or 0.9) that Google and the other engines may not be
able to pick up on the pages.

Does anyone know if Google and/or the other engines use 1.1
exclusively or if the lower version results can effect them.

As far as I can remember, pre-1.1 stopped being a problem in 1998 or so. I
cannot imagine that the SE's use anything less than 1.1, because they
would otherwise have huge problems with lots of virtually hosted sites.
