What is ip2nation?
There is currently a number of companies on the internet charging for databases or files containing information about where an IP is allocated (as in which country). This information is in fact available for free at ARIN, APNIC, RIPE etcetera. Though, those files are not in any way optimized for queries and are indeed very slow. This is where ip2nation.com comes in.
We utilitize these files to create a MySQL database table with the appropriate indexes. We've also optimized the table and removed unneccesary information in order to make queries lightning fast. In order to utilitize the table you may find help in the PHP examples under "Sample scripts".
