Programmatic IP lookup

Post by cptrich » Wed Feb 15, 2012 6:50 am

I have built an IP based usage monitoring system for my site, I would like to be able to resolve the IP address to get some of the basic information about the address, ISP Name, Country, City etc. If I use this site I can do this one at a time through "http://whatismyipaddress.com/ip/..." it also allows me to do this through the URL, but if I try to automate the process the site throws me a 503 error.

Obviously they don't want people doing this. Is there a resource that is open for this type of use? I have about 2,000 IP's a day that I need to lookup. Is there a better way?
