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:

http://wiki.jumba.com.au/wiki/PHP_Get_user_IP_Address

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

Hope that helps.

you need to either Sotre Cisty/State data broken down by IP into your Database...or you can use API's to get City State Data based upon IP..

I used following Service to get User Data:

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.

HTH, ~Ray

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?
