Informations about the package ipinfo

IP User Location

A basic PHP wrapper for adding IP based user location detection into your application using the IP Info DB API.


Add pta/ipinfo as a requirement to composer.json:

Update your packages with composer update or install with composer install.

You can also add the package using composer require pta/ipinfo and later specifying the version you want.


Get city based information

You can use ->getCity($ip) to retrieve city level information about an IP address.

Example json response:

Get country based information

You can use ->getCountry($ip) to retrieve country level information about an IP address. Obviously this is faster than retrieving city level information.

Example json response:

Validate an IP address

You can use ->validIP($ip) to see if the specified IP Address is valid.

Under the hood this uses filter_var($ip, FILTER_VALIDATE_IP), I assume this is pretty solid. If you have any suggestions for a better way of doing this send a pull request or drop me an email.

Get the user's IP address

You can use ->getIpAddress() to retrieve the users IP address.

You shouldn't be trusting a user based this data, HTTP headers can be faked, trivially.

API keys & query limits

You can get a (free) API key here, obviously this should be kept private.

While there are no strict query limits if you send more than 2 requests per second they will be queued. You will still always get a response, but it will be slowed to around 1 /second.

I would strongly suggest using some form of cache. Cookies (mmm cookies) are probably the easiest way to deal with this:
