Hi ProZians,
Almost every time I try to locate a visitor, Geobytes indicates that it is impossible. I have also tried webmaster-toolkit.com, with more success, I must admit.
The problem is that some addresses do not seem to be registered anywhere. Is there a list of (at least) country codes for IP address locators?
If this has been discussed before, please indicate the link. I could not find anything in the "Forum Search" feature.
Thanks,
mm

Try this... Dec 21, 2005

Hi, Marcela!
Try www.whois.sc
I've tried it for some time and it's quite satisfactory.
Regards,
Dan

IP2Location Dec 21, 2005

http://www.ip2location.com

Also good one with detalization to the local provider level and almost 100% effective search results.

Thanks! Dec 21, 2005

Thank you Dan and mk-lab. I have tried both, and they seem equally effective and precise!
I have added both to "Favourites".
Thanks again.

Not that precise Dec 21, 2005

When checking out one of the links I was told I am based in America. They should have at least got the continent right!

See this thread Dec 21, 2005

I raised this with Henry in Kraków and confirmed the point in the ProZ.com Suggestions forum:

Much more effective than Geobytes Dec 22, 2005

I have tried out both IP2location and Whois. Both are much more effective than Geobytes. Indeed, little mistake still happened. They suggested that I am in Sumatra Utara while in fact I am in Sumatra Barat. As a whole, they are really helpful to identify our visitors.

more on locators Dec 22, 2005

When they identified me, they were pretty accurate.

Russell: when I did a forum search (my key words were: Geobytes, IP address locator), the ProZ engine gave no results at all. It sounds strange because Geobytes was the subject of your enquiry in the link to the thread you mentioned above...

Regards to all,
mm
