IP2Location


IP2Location  2019 Description:

Identify Geographical Location by IP Address. What is my IP, Geo IP solution to identify country, region, city, latitude & longitude, ZIP code, time zone, connection speed, ISP, domain name, IDD country code, area code.


IP2Location IP-Country-ISP Database is a powerful and reliable tool designed to match converted IP addresses to geographic data, indicating the country where they originate and the ISP. What is my ip utility relies on an advanced algorithm that can transform the IP address into an IP number, then insert the variable in a mathematical equation.

The result of the calculations are matched against a range condition and the final answer indicates the data of the country where the IP address originates. The output is displayed in a table, containing the beginning and ending of an IP address range, both represented by the IP number.The country indicator is also displayed in the table, along with its complete name and the title of the ISP - Internet Service Provider.The country indicator is a two-character value, which represents the code assigned to each state, based on the ISO 3166 regulations.

For example, US stands for United States of America, CA for Canada and FR for France.The country name is also based on the ISO 3166 code and the Internet Service Provider can be determined by the IP address range registration.

IP2Location IP-Country-ISP Database provides you with the means to acquire information regarding the location of a particular IP address. You may use this algorithm to determine the provenance of the users who visit your website or perform a security check.The tool offers a comprehensive collection of values, used for matching the IP numbers to the countries and the Internet service providers. You may thus identify the location of the users with a particular IP address, information that you can use for statistics or security verification.IP2Location IP-Country-ISP Database can thus be used with a large variety of software that can perform the searching algorithms and can easily be integrated with programs or Web apps.

IP2Location™ IP-Country-ISP Database [DB2] provides a solution to determine what is my ip, the country, and Internet Service Provider (ISP), or company name of origin for any IP address in a few simple steps. First, retrieve the IP address from the networking protocol or server-side variable of the Web server. Next, translate the IP address to an IP number in decimal format to speed up the database query. Lastly, reverse lookup the IP number from the IP2Location™ database to pinpoint the exact geographical location.

Main Features

Accurate Geolocation
IP2Location™ is a non-intrusive IP location lookup technology that retrieves geolocation information, what is my ip with no explicit permission required from users. All you need is your client’s IP address.

Supports IPv4 & IPv6
It works for all IP addresses including IPv4 and IPv6 in one database or API. Simple and no extra cost required for IP location lookup.

Easy Integration
It can be seamlessly integrated into any software platforms to retrieve IP geolocation information using Database, REST API and SDK (Java, .NET, PHP, Ruby, Python, Perl and many more)

Multiple Granularity
It comes with different IP database packages with varying levels of IP geolocation information granularity to suit your business needs. Pay for what you need.

Data File Specifications

- IP_FROM : Beginning of IP address range. The data is represented in IP number1 format.
- IP_TO: Ending of IP address range. The data is represented in IP number1 format.
- COUNTRY_CODE: Two-character country code based on ISO 3166
- COUNTRY_NAME: Country name based on ISO 3166.
- ISP_NAME: Internet Service Provider registered under the IP address range.


IP Address to IP Number Conversion
If the IP address 161.132.13.1, then the IP number is 2709785857.
IP Number, X = 161 x (256*256*256) + 132 x (256*256) + 13 x (256) + 1 = 2709785857
In general, this is the formula to convert an IP Address to IP Number.
Let assume the IP Address is A.B.C.D.
IP Number, X = A x (256*256*256) + B x (256*256) + C x 256 + D

Record Matching First, convert the search IP Address to IP Number, X. Search a record that matches the range condition. You will get only one match per query. The country information is attached to country fields of the record.
IP_FROM <= X <= IP_TO

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the database format?
We provide two different database formats (CSV and BIN).
The first database format is known as Comma Separated Values (CSV). It is a text file and all fields are separated by a comma with double quote in each field. Each individual row is a database record.
The second database format is known as Binary (BIN). It is a binary file with database information. Developers access to the BIN files using IP2Location API available in multiple languages.

How do I automate the IP2Location LITE database download?
You can automate the IP2Location LITE database using download client or common HTTP applications such as wget or curl. We update IP2Location databases on the first day of the calendar month. Please download the database once a month during a random day from the first week of calendar month to avoid network congestion. We will disable any LITE account if account sharing or massive download is detected.

How do I convert an IPv4 Address to an IP Number?
IP address (IPV4) is divided into 4 sub-blocks. Each sub-block has a different weight number each powered by 256. IP number is being used in the database because it is more efficient to search between a range of numbers in a database.

How do I convert an IPv6 Address to an IP Number?
IP address (IPv6) is divided into 8 groups of four hexadecimal digits with a colon as a group separator. Each group has a different weight number each powered by 65536. IP number is being used in the database because it is more efficient to search between a range of numbers in a database.

How do I retrieve the country data from the IP Number?
Firstly, convert the IP address to IP number format. Search IP-Country Database using IP number to match a record that has the IP Number between the Beginning IP Number and the Ending IP Number.
For example, IP Address "72.77.138.60" is "1213041212" in IP Number. It matched the following recordset in the database.
"1213041208","1213041215","US","UNITED STATES"

What is the minus sign "-" in country name or country code?
The IP2Location will display the "-" in country field when the IP address range is still unallocated to any countries. It is also known as reserved IP address range.

How do I use this database?
First, import this database into your MSSQL, MS-ACCESS, PL/SQL, MYSQL or other RDMS. Use an SQL query to get the matching recordset.
Example of SQL Query (MSSQL)
SELECT [COUNTRY NAME COLUMN], [REGION NAME COLUMN], [CITY NAME COLUMN], [LATITUDE COLUMN], [LONGITUDE COLUMN], [ZIP CODE COLUMN], [TIME ZONE COLUMN], [ISP COLUMN], [DOMAIN NAME COLUMN], [NETSPEED COLUMN], [IDD CODE COLUMN], [AREA CODE COLUMN], [WEATHER STATION CODE COLUMN], [WEATHER STATION NAME COLUMN], [MCC COLUMN], [MNC COLUMN], [BRAND NAME COLUMN]
FROM [IP-COUNTRY-REGION-CITY-LATITUDE-LONGITUDE-ZIPCODE-TIMEZONE-ISP-DOMAIN-NETSPEED-AREACODE-WEATHER-MOBILE TABLE]
WHERE [SEARCH IP NO] BETWEEN [IP FROM COLUMN] AND [IP TO COLUMN]

Example of SQL Query (MYSQL)
SELECT [COUNTRY NAME COLUMN], [REGION NAME COLUMN], [CITY NAME COLUMN], [LATITUDE COLUMN], [LONGITUDE COLUMN], [ZIP CODE COLUMN], [TIME ZONE COLUMN], [ISP COLUMN], [DOMAIN NAME COLUMN], [NETSPEED COLUMN], [IDD CODE COLUMN], [AREA CODE COLUMN], [WEATHER STATION CODE COLUMN], [WEATHER STATION NAME COLUMN], [MCC COLUMN], [MNC COLUMN], [BRAND NAME COLUMN]
FROM [IP-COUNTRY-REGION-CITY-LATITUDE-LONGITUDE-ZIPCODE-TIMEZONE-ISP-DOMAIN-NETSPEED-AREACODE-WEATHER-MOBILE TABLE]
WHERE ([IP FROM COLUMN] <= [SEARCH IP NO]) AND ([IP TO COLUMN] >= [SEARCH IP NO])
