Our developer's package is designed to provide businesses with the ability to include IP address geolocation technology within their products. The GeoLite Developer's Package allows you to distribute GeoLite databases (including updates) royalty-free for one year.
How can GeoLite databases be used?
There are many applications that can benefit from the addition of geolocation technology. For example, the GeoLite Developer's Package can be used for ad-serving engines, web analytics, traffic blocking/redirecting tools, spam-filters, and firewall software.
With the Developer's Package, you can distribute your product without having to worry about paying royalties to us. Should your clients need more accuracy, they can purchase GeoIP database licenses from us. GeoIP databases are drop-in replacements for GeoLite databases.
We offer redistribution licenses for GeoLite databases that allow you to package the databases with your commercial products.
We include a license for redistribution of our API code with your commercial software.
