IP address to Country

Post by kaneshlal » Fri Oct 14, 2011 2:36 am

Can you one help to find third party api or webservice for IP address to hostname lookup.

and for hostname to geolocation. Please share your thought.

* open source and paid service/api is okay
* we can get the hostname by enabling reverse dns lookup(is there any other better solution other than this)

We have links to a number of geolocation database providers here.

rDNS lookups are the best way to get the currently hostname for an IP address.
