Free monthly updates to the database are available from
This free database is similar to the database contained in IP::Country, as well as many paid databases. It uses ARIN, RIPE, APNIC, and LACNIC whois to obtain the IP->Country mappings.
For Win32 users, the GeoIP.dat database file is expected to reside in the /Program Files/GeoIP/ directory.
If you require greater accuracy, MaxMind offers a Premium database on a paid subscription basis.
A mailing list and cvs access for the GeoIP library are available from SourceForge; see http://sourceforge.net/projects/geoip/.
