API Documentation


All requests have to be HTTP GET requests in the following schema:{ip}/{language}/{type}


ip optional Valid IP address in IPv4 or IPv6 format.
language optional Two character language code like en or de.
type optional Possible values are short to get a response conataining only most relevant data or full to get a response containing all available data.


By default all responses are JSON encoded strings.
It is also possible to get JSONP responses for direct usage in javascripts. To get a JSONP response a callback function has to be provided within the request using the ?callback= parameter.

function foo(data) {
    document.write("City: ",;
    document.write("Country: ",;
    document.write("Latitude: ", data.location.latitude);
    document.write("Longitude: ", data.location.longitude);
<script src=""></script>


This service is also available via https.


The API follows a fair use policy. There are no limits by default but if the service is abused your IP may get blocked.


This API is totally free, however there are a few expenses to run the servers. In case you like this project and use it regularly please consider donating a small amount using PayPal.
