get info for visitors

Dear,
When u go to sites like http://www.hide-my-ip.com/, the site shows your IP, Location  and ISP provider.
How can I do that in asp.net/php, and what other information of visitors can I get too?
Thx

That is a GET function I believe.

Here is a good article:

Also you will need to echo the variable once set up and use print to display it on the screen.

Hope that helps.

Run this script and look near the bottom.  You can get the client browser and IP address.
<?php phpinfo();

Open in new window

Once you have the IP address, you can make an educated guess about the location.  See this article for more: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Web_Languages-Standards/PHP/PHP_Databases/A_3437-IP-Address-to-Country-in-PHP.html

You can get a more refined view of the client location by using one of the web services like this one: http://www.geoio.com/

I used the GEOIO service to get the IP-to-location information used to draw the map on this page.  
http://www.landonbaseball.com/site_visitors.php
Something interesting to note... The locations are not precise and though the site has had thousands of visitors, only a few hundred locations are mapped.  That is because the IP address is mapped to the location of the Internet Point of Presence.  Where I live in McLean, VA, there are thousands of people whose IP addresses all point to the same internet terminus.

Ok for country, what about other information of visitors can I get too?
I see that I can get the user-agent info, possible nat ip, hostname, request, referrer, and browser language used.
Any other info can I grab?

If you join an advertising network like DoubleClick or UnderTone you will find all kinds of good information at very low cost.
