You can purchase 3rd party databases for IP address but they do change.

You might also script a lookup against a website that provides this information such as http://www.ip2location.com/free.asp

If you use a website then please check with the owner to make sure it's ok for you to query against it.

thanks,

I wanna get the result in page load method instead of posting a form, isn't there any way to get a result in page load method?

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
       // code to get location of remote host ip
    }

hi,
 protected void chkIPAddress_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
            string hostName = Dns.GetHostName();            
            Console.WriteLine("Host Name = " + hostName);
            IPHostEntry local = Dns.GetHostByName(hostName);
            foreach (IPAddress ipaddress in local.AddressList)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("IPAddress = " + ipaddress.ToString());
                result = result + ipaddress.ToString();
            }
            txtBrowser.Text = result ;
        }
