What is GeoIPMap?

GeoIPMap is a service that offers both on-premise and cloud based IP location lookups.

Whether you’re a app developer, sys admin, or in the digital marketing space IP locations offer valuable insights into your users from marketing to security perspectives. Monitoring GDPR permission management or showing the correct currency by country, GeoIPMap solves this issue.

Why use us?

GeoIPMap was the creation of a reoccuring problem we had when working from project to project. It was built to solve a pain point that we wanted to share with the world. We offer two things:

Quick (& free!) hosted IP lookups, see our quick start guide where we do all the work for you

Ultra-fast on-premise IP lookups, this offering is a work in progress and will be available soon. Make simple REST calls or even faster gRPC lookups, the best part is this is totally free!

What data do you track?

Great question. We keep notes on how many requests are being made per day. Aside from that, we don’t keep logs on the IP addresses that are looked up or the data we return.

What if I need more than 1,000 requests per day?

If you need more than 1,000 requests per day send us an email and we can set something up for you!

Why do I have to email you? Well… we aren’t a huge team and our priority is maintaining a kickass service. An automated billing system will come eventually.
