Live Demo

To connect to this service you'll need to use one of these endpoints:

WSDL
https://webservices.data-8.co.uk/countrydetection.asmx
JSON
https://webservices.data-8.co.uk/CountryDetection/IPAddressToCountrySimple.json

Description

Identifies a country from a customer's IP address. Both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses are supported.

The details of the detected country are provided in the returned values. If no country could be identified, the country name and ISO code are both set to "Unknown".

If the ipAddress parameter is left blank, the IP address that the request is being made from will be used. This is particularly useful when integrating the service into a web page via JavaScript, at which point the public IP address is not known to the calling code but will be determined automatically by our service.
