GeoLite2 Commercial Redistribution License

Our commercial redistribution license is designed to provide businesses with the ability to include IP address geolocation technology within their products. The GeoLite2 commercial redistribution license allows you to distribute GeoLite2 databases (including updates) as part of a single product, royalty-free for one year.

Please note that the GeoLite2 databases included in the GeoLite2 commercial redistribution license are not as accurate as our GeoIP2 databases. Learn more about the differences between GeoLite and GeoIP on our Knowledge Base.

How can GeoLite2 databases be used?

There are many applications that can benefit from the addition of geolocation technology. For example, the GeoLite2 commercial redistribution license can be used for ad-serving engines, web analytics, traffic blocking/redirecting tools, spam-filters, and firewall software.

With a commercial redistribution license, you can distribute a product without having to worry about paying royalties to us. Should your clients need more accuracy, they can purchase GeoIP2 database licenses from us. GeoIP2 databases are drop-in replacements for GeoLite2 databases.


The GeoLite2 Commercial Redistribution license is priced to allow unlimited distribution of the GeoLite2 databases for one commercial product:

  • GeoLite2 Country database: $5,000/year
  • GeoLite2 City database: $10,000/year
