FAQ

Do I have to pay for the MaxMind database?

No, MaxMind offer a free version of the database. However the paid for version is more accurate.

I am a wordpress developer and want to access the country code or name in my code. How do I do that?

Easy 🙂 Just declare the global variables $rdISO3166_1 or $rdCountryName in your code and away you go.
