The WhoisXML IP Geolocation API allows developers to get the physical location for an IP address. This can be used to personalize site content by detecting users from different countries, customize currencies shown on e-commerce sites, etc. It can also be used for security purposes to identify and prevent risky situations with regard to users’ originating country; and access blocking, comparing visitor data to known customer locations to detect possible fraud and identity theft.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
