3 years ago we launched our IP Address Geolocation API. During this time we provided more than 10 billion results. We have constantly upgraded the service to provide better and more accurate details.
Today, using our API you can programatically get the following details about any IP Address:
- Internet Service Provider
- Link to country flag
Our API is very easy to use. The information is provided in XML format. The URL for accessing the API is: http://www.ipgp.net/api/xml/IP_ADDRESS/API_KEY .
Here is an example of how results are returned:
<Isp>China Unicom Beijing Province Network</Isp>
<Organization>China Unicom Beijing province network</Organization>

Your data is very important. Not the program files that you can download whenever you want, but your important data: pictures with your kids and family, movie clips, important documents from your work. You may think that your data is unsafe on the Internet, that someone can steals your data or you can lose it, but let me ask you something: Is your data safe on your computer ?
When you don’t pay enough attention, someone can steal your laptop or access your computer much easier than he can hack a website where people are working dedicated to protect that data. If you let your computer open at work someone can steal all your data in 15 minutes or less, without effort.
Data stored on cloud is safer than stored anywhere else, more, you can access it from anywhere and don’t have to worry to sync your music files with your home and work computer, tablet or phone.
There are many companies that offer you cloud storage for your data. To make sure you choose the right one you may want to read some cloud backup review of companies that offer cloud storage. Among the features that you might want to look when you buy a cloud storage are: Speed, Uptime, ease of use, technical support, customer care, reliability and money. I intentionally left the money as last criteria because when you talk about your data, the money are the least you want to think about. I don’t want to ask you how your data is worth for you. You can rent a cloud data storage for as low as 4$/month. Is your data worth more than this ?
To make sure you select the best cloud storage provider you can read some reviews on dedicated websites. On Top 10 cloud storage you can see which are the top 10 companies that offer cloud storage, top 10 companies that offer online backup solutions and top 10 companies that offer cloud servers.
When dealing with private data, the security is very important for all. These companies are paying money to ensure that your data and your connection is protected, so no one can steal it.

I liked windows XP, it was a good version of Windows. The problems at the start of the XP was terrifying, but with service pack 2 most of the problems were solved. Despite i like windows xp, let’s face it, it is not getting any younger. Windows XP is losing popularity.
According to a poll i run on my site, 36% of my readers use Windows 7, and only 26% are using XP. The results of the poll may be not representative for the whole world, but they say something: Windows 7 is more popular right now. What happens ? The advantage that everything works on XP will go away. Software and driver developers will start to support less and less the “old” version of Windows and we will start to have problems.

According to a poll that run on Ipgp.net for over 3 months more than 50% of Ipgp.net users had problems with viruses in the last year. This, taking into account that 17% don’t know that a virus is, that may led us think that they wasn’t aware that they had viruses.
A good thing is 25% of our users never experienced problems with viruses. I hope it was not an answer based on a high self-confidence, or they may had viruses they weren’t aware of. Read the rest of this entry »
