Hello,

Is there a way I can tell if someone has browsing my page from a specific country. All I want is for the browser to load the default page unless they are from the UK then load a different one.

Thanks.

There is no fool proof & straight forward way of achieving this using asp... unless you are willing to spend some dollars in setting up/buying a service that would guarantee results.

Read through the article for more info.

What I normally do is to setup a landing/splash pages(normally default.asp) that has a list of country websites listed. Once the user chooses his/her preffered site, the appropriate content can be shown to the user.

Cheers!
