Post by topanonly » Fri Nov 16, 2012 1:17 am

I want to ask what kind of database ip whatismyipaddresss.com use?
Because it seems to be there's some differrent with RIR member(Apnic).

We check on whatismyipaddress.com our IP is still locate on Jakarta, Indonesia.
But in Apnic technically that IP is from Bali, Indonesia.

Here it is the result from Apnic Who is

The IP WHOIS information does not tell you the location of the IP you are checking, it tells you the location of the company or organization that has been assigned to the IP range the address is in.

Look at the IP WHOIS to get a general idea of where the IP is located, then check Whatismyipaddress.com to get more specific information about where the IP is located and what provider it has been assigned to.
