I believe this website is worth a look: [maxmind.com...]

Have a look at this one which I use.


Send me a sticky message for the http address as links aren't allowed.

Please report back your findings, good or bad!

ip-to-country (just google it) is by far the best DB available at this time. It's updated about once a month (it was just updated yesterday) and is far more accurate than anything else I have seen or found.

GeoIP by maxmind is the best. initially We have been forced to disable the GeoIP module [which translates IP addresses into a country of origin. ] This module was causing the web server [apache] software to fail repeatedly. When this happened, accesses to the website received only errors and no content. These failures also caused instability for other users on the same server.

the ppl at maxmind fixed the bug. but it may happen to you if you are using the free version....
