GeoIP Legacy .NET API

Deprecation Notice

This API is deprecated and no longer supported. Please use our our GeoIP2 .NET API instead.

IP Geolocation Usage

IP geolocation is inherently imprecise. Locations are often near the center of the population. Any location provided by a GeoIP database or web service should not be used to identify a particular address or household.

Thread Safety

As of version 1.14 this API is thread safe.

Instructions for Mono

To compile the examples:

Country: gmcs examples/countryExample.cs src/*.cs

City: gmcs examples/cityExample.cs src/*.cs

Country v6: gmcs examples/countryV6Example.cs src/*.cs

City v6: gmcs examples/cityV6Example.cs src/*.cs

Region: gmcs examples/regionExample.cs src/*.cs

Organization: gmcs examples/orgExample.cs src/*.cs

Domain: gmcs examples/domainExample.cs src/*.cs

Netspeed cell: gmcs examples/netspeedCellExample.cs src/*.cs

To run the examples:

Country: mono countryExample.exe

City: mono cityExample.exe 24.24.24.24

Organization: mono orgExample.exe

Domain: mono domainExample.exe

ASN: mono asnExample.exe

Country v6: mono countryV6Example.exe

City: mono cityV6Example.exe ::24.24.24.24

ASN v6: mono asnV6Example.exe

Memory Caching

There are two options available:

  • GEOIP_STANDARD - Read database from filesystem. Uses least memory.
  • GEOIP_MEMORY_CACHE - load database into memory, faster performance but uses more memory
