There are some vendors offering IP Geo-location lookup service for developers to access the clients’ locations by their IPs e.g.
extreme-ip-lookup.com When extreme-ip-lookup.com/json/ is called, it return a JSON, it’s really handy.
However, I’m concerned about the data protection and security of the external providers. So, I’m thinking to use this plugin as if a private API service which is limited to the access from specific websites, and return a json of client’s Geo IP via HTTP request.
Does anybody have any idea to make it possible?
Any comment welcome. Thank you.
