MaxMind GeoIP® Databases

Your Source for IP Intelligence

Access, download, and locally host GeoIP databases, backed by continuous updates and rigorous quality control processes.

Your IP Address
Postal Code
Approximate Latitude / Longitude*, and Accuracy Radius
ISP / Organization
Connection Type
The coordinates are not precise and should not be used to identify a particular street address or household. To better represent a level of accuracy, you must include the Accuracy Radius (km) when displaying latitude and longitude and make it clear that the coordinates refer to a larger geographical area instead of a precise location.

Beyond geolocation

GeoIP databases offer a wide range of data points, including time zone, ISP, connection type, and more. Leverage this data to create personalized user experiences, target specific audiences, and streamline operations.
