Jon Seigel 9, 7 47 Bondy k 95 You might be interested in the xkcd IP map. Abacus 1, 11 Alnitak k 61 Well yes, as you move down the domain stack things get slower and slower and take longer to propagate out There are also problems if you ISP is headquatered in another country.

Joel wrote about this with his host being Canadian. Jason - that's rubbish. It's not "how far down the stack" you are. Any ISP can make a change that's visible in the "whois" data instantly. What's slow is the probably illegal crawling of that data by the GeoLoc providers.

It violates the terms of use. So, "illegal" if you will. It's a civil breach of the database copyright. In my jurisdiction that's illegal. Alnitak's answer is pretty much on the mark.

Finally learned that I need to click the bubble to populate the remaining fields with the full info for the IP I am searching. Nice redesign, thank you for the free service. Can you please post a copy of the URL that board is linking to, as something like this should work:. Can you please post a copy of the URL that you are coming in on?

It should look something like this:. The following code has worked for months. Why has it suddenly stopped working? We only do about 2 to 10 lookups per day, if that. Something is wrong, I can confirm. I cannot anymore search for IP geolocation. Should I look for an alternative? As that will achieve the same result, and you get 16, look ups per hour for free — rather than the 20 free lookups that you received previously.

FYI There is a complete working sample here: I am keen to help, but I am unsure of what you are referring to. Could you please provide us with an example of specifically what does not work? Also, I think you getIP function is pretty pointless since all those server variables are easily spoofed. So in a nutshell, the code you gave as an example is not working.

I used the code from the example page you mentioned. With regards to the getIP function — it really depends on what you are trying to do. Thanks for the correction — I have posted it here so that it will be included in our next map update.

Someone from Vietnam has been trying to get into my Tivo acct. Probably trying to add subtitles to all the programs I record. Thanks for the service! I stopped using your site a couple of months ago and never went back to this discussion. Now I see you fixed it. Yes, thanks again for your valuable feedback — I had not noticed the problem as I had always selected the IP Address from the drop down list, but upon having it pointed out to me, I agree that it was definitely a problem.

It is great to have it fixed now, and I am even using the submit button myself. BTW — I also wired enter key to the submit button — which I am finding easier than having to reach for the mouse. It you have any further suggestions for improvements, then please let me know. Ok, so how can I get results using a bash shell script?

I am having trouble getting Disqus to accept my longer answer, so here is the short version: I am attempting to purchase mapbytes. The other half of the time I get a message saying that I have successfully added it to my cart, but when I go to my cart, the cart is empty. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that Ferg worked around this by using the PayPal Buy Now buttons that you see in the right hand margin of each page.

In any case, just for the benefit of other readers, the PayPal Buy Now buttons are replacing our previous shopping cart facility — the remnants of which are very soon to be completely removed from our site.

So the PayPal Buy Now buttons are now the way to go. I was testing geobytes to use here at our office. I used the code provided above. I am receiving data when I submit an IP address, but the data coming back is wrong. For instance, I enter one of our IP addresses When I try the addresses on other IP lookup sites, they come back correctly.

Thank you for the two corrections — I have updated our IP Address Map database accordingly, and the corrections will be visible from our web site by next Monday night, if not before. With regards to why they were wrong in the first place, both errors were the result of us having very little data for these ranges — most likely due to the fact that very little out bound traffic originates from either IP Address.

Just by way of further explanation, the purpose of our map is to locate the geographic origin of internet traffic, and not the location of internet routers, so infrastructure that originates very little traffic is where we have the least data, and accordingly the least accuracy.

Finally, we really appreciate corrections, and are happy to receive them here, via email, or any which way, but to make it as easy as possible to get them into our system then you may like to post them to CorrectGeo, as errors posted there are automatically imported once or twice a week.

I check on other ip location services and they get it right. Would you be able to please post the IP Addresses in question, and I will look in to each case, and update our database as may be required.

You may also wish to post any errors that you may find to http: I am not sure if it applies in this case, but with regards to the other ip location services agreeing with each other… This raises suspicion that they are all using the same data source in this instance — which I would expect is the NICs whois database. And as I am sure that you are aware, many ISPs service tens, hundreds, and even thousands of cities — so you can see that for anything but a single city ISP, the whois record is going to be wrong most of the time.

In any case, thanks for letting us know abot the errors, and please let me know if I can assist further. Some errors I found today. Thanks for the correction — I appreciate it, and have updated our database accordingly. The correction should be visible from our site here as of next Monday night.

If you identify any others, then please either post them here, or here: This week, my IP address is Yes, no relation to Nashville, TN. Geobytes is alone in placing me in Wilson, NC. The pie chart is an interesting strategy. The slimmest slices of the pie chart are unlabeled, or are labeled with only a half-a-letter.

And the kicker is that Nashville NC is not represented in the pie chart as far as I can tell or the table of possible locations. Half a year ago, no geolocation services recognized I am in Nashville NC. Today, 1 out of 10 correctly places me in Nashville NC , which I guess is an improvement. Thank you for the correction, and your kind words. With regards to the pie graph, you may have already found this yourself, but in any case the easiest way to see the full location that a slice represents, is to click on the slice, and then read the location from the table below — as it updates to whichever slice you click on.

Gives incorrect location for Tried several other sites and they are correct. The other is Bothel, WA. The free service has moved. The location of my IP address is way off!

My IP address is: How do I change correct this problem or do you fix it? Thank you for any help. Thanks Sabrina, I have posted your correction to http: With regards as to how to get other IP localization services to update their database — other than posting to http: In any case, thanks for letting us know about the error, and please let me know if I can assist further.

The original service — at 20 free look ups per hour, was intended to be used manually, but as people started using robots to access the service we try to support that by adding templates, and this would have been fine if people had limited there robots to us the free 20 lookups per hour.

However, some people just let there robots bash away at the page, at un-imaginably high rates so we have had to move this traffic to away from our primary web site — hence the move. However, we are keen to provide the service that people require, so the new location has been built to handle very high load — and that is why we have been able to increase the free look ups per hour from 20 to 16, accesses per hour.

So while it is a pain to have to update your code — we hope that you will agree that it is worth it. Thanks Pungh, I have posted your correction to http: Hopefully other providers will update their records form there also.
