GeoIPs Code

If you already have a GeoIPs account, you can send requests in any programming language.

PHP

This is an example of a call to the GeoIPs API using PHP. If the credentials are valid, the call will return a xml response into a variable.

<?php
$ip 	  = '8.8.8.8';
$apikey   = '36434385dd45665bhea769898a4e8ee2';
$output	  = 'xml';
$timezone = 'true';
$hostname = 'true';
$service  = 'http://api.geoips.com';
$ch = curl_init();
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $service 
 .'/ip/'.$ip 
 .'/key/'.$apikey
 .'/timezone/'.$timezone
 .'/hostname/'.$hostname
 .'/output/'.$output);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_HTTPAUTH, CURLAUTH_ANY);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT, 4);
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_TIMEOUT, 3);
$data = curl_exec($ch);
if(curl_errno($ch)) {
print 'curl error: '.curl_error($ch);
return false;
}
else {	
print $data;
return $data;
}
curl_close($ch);
?>
