Introduction –

This is not exactly a tutorial, but a small trick, to access ip-to-country.wehbosting.info demo as a web-service. ip-to-country.wehbosting.info does provide a nice CSV format of transferring IPs to country. Pretty amazing. But the problem is you need to have a good DB support at your end to use it

For example –

<?php

$ip = $_GET[‘ip’];

function get_country($ip)

{

$f = fsockopen(‘ip-to-country.webhosting.info’, 80);

if (!$f)

{

return false;

}

$postdata = “ip_address=”.urlencode($ip).”&submit=”.urlencode(‘Find Country’);

$request = ”;

$request .= “POST /node/view/36 HTTP/1.1\r\n”;

$request .= “Host: ip-to-country.webhosting.info\r\n”;

$request .= “User-Agent: Its me again\r\n”;

$request .= “Content-Length: “.strlen($postdata).”\r\n”;

$request .= “Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded\r\n”;

$request .= “\r\n”;

$request .= “$postdata\r\n”;

fwrite($f, $request);

$response = ”;

while (!feof($f))

{

$response .= fgets($f, 128);

}

$pos1 = strpos ( $response , ‘</from>’);

$pos2 = strpos ( $response , ‘<br><br><img’ , $pos1 );

$parse_from = substr( $response, $pos1+21, ($pos2-$pos1) );

$pattern = “/<b>([^\/]*)<\/b>/si”;

preg_match_all($pattern, $parse_from, $matches);

return $matches[1][1];

}

echo (get_country($ip));

?>

Thank you,
