IP to Location API

Locate and identify website visitors' info (latitude, logintude, connection, currency, timezone etc...) by IP address.

IP to Location API is a REST API which provides the essential data from any IP address in JSON format over HTTPS such as:

  • Country / City / State / Continent
  • Latitude and Longitude
  • Local currency
  • Internet Service Provider (ISP) lookup
  • Country calling code and Time Zone
