Geolocation script or Service? List visitor city..

5 replies
Hello,
I'm looking for a solution that would list the persons city when they visit my webpage. Such as electricians in Detroit. It will list Detroit if the persons from that city or where they're from. Whether it be free or a paid service..

Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
Brian

    My web host uses Apache and there is a geo location mod you can install on the server (stablehost) also if you use cloudflare there is an option they have for the same thing. Contact your web host. Both options return a variable you can use to customize the webpage. If your using Cloundflare it superseeds the server side one.

      Thanks for the reply. Sorry I didn't write that I have a cloud-based landing page service like Lead pages.. They allow you to add a script to their settings and then HTML on the page itself. The service is https://www.convertri.com/

      If anyone else has some feedback that would be great!

    Recently I have worked with one of my German clients on his eCommerce website. He requested something similar. He wanted me to find a visitors IP address and then convert it to city/country.

    The first phase finding a visitors address is easy, but for the second phase, we need a database where there is information of your IP address and city list. Some of the company has their database and they allow us to query on their website to get an IP address converted to city/country.

    I implemented one of them but after some day the website banned me. Cause I crossed the query limit for a free package. It means you have to purchase a paid subscription to use their API.

    Next, I found another website by which you can use their database for free.

    Now come to your point I am not sure convertri.com has any system to integrate custom PHP programming code into their system. Just talk to them. I might be able to guide you how to implement this system into your website.

    Thanks

      Thanks for the reply, yes I spoke to another member and he wrote up up a custom script for me. There are quite a few free and paid databases that you can utilize for this. If it's e-commerce, you probably want to go with a paid solution. As you suggested..
      Best regards,
      Brian
