|Database License: DONATIONWARE
|Previously, This DB
was licensed differently (GPL V3), which restricted many
commercial developers from using it at all.
Now, it's "donationware".
Problem is, many are using it in commercial products, benefiting
financially without giving a thought to the source - this database.
It's simple: we cannot
offer tens of thousands of downloads per day without assistance. Please
help us.... the PayPal link is right above.

Please note it is still under development. We would love to have your feedback.
|This Database and website is operated as
a free Web Service maintained by Webnet77 and updated daily. It represents
the over 4 billion IPV4 numbers as well as the virtually inexhaustible IPV6
We have been running this database as a free community
service since 2004 and will continue to do so for as long as funds permit.
We do ask that you consider making a donation as our operating cost for
this site have increased substantially over time - As more and more developers
build our database into end-user applications, downloads increase non-linearly.
For example, all it takes is some new Ubuntu distro or Wordpress
plugin to be released that uses this database and we suddenly have an extra
10,000 downloads per day. Wordpress or Mambo don't get updated daily but
this database does, so in many cases, people download it daily hence the
number of daily downloads increases disproportionately as application usage
In the past 3 hours the database has been
downloaded 1,195,619 times.
|Contributions by various members of community.
Here you will find scripts written in languages like Perl, PHP, Java, awk
as well as bash. The applications vary from firewall applications to bind
acl's as well as browser based country lookup scripts you can use on your
website. Most scripts are licensed under the
the software page.
|How often should you download this database?
|If you use our IP to country Database in
your applications you should get an updated copy from time to time. Depending
on your application, probably once a month should be fine. We have observed
up to 50 row changes from a single registry in a one day on busy days. Some
days there are far fewer.
This may sound like a lot or a little depending
on how you look at it. Mostly it will not affect you and sometimes it can
be significant. For example, a Registry may allocate a block of IP numbers
for a specific event - like an international trade show. These IP numbers
may be valid for a few weeks only and then revert back to the registry when
the show is over. Unless your application has an interest in the trade show
event, the assignment/revocation of these IP numbers will have little impact
on you or your application.
