Hello Experts.

There is a way to get users IP using $_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'], etc.
But how can i get user's domain?

I have a page that returns a json response.

that page is consulted by another website using the function "file_get_contents" and that website is "www.mydomain.org".

Can i get the domain name the consulted me ("www.mydomain.org") besides his IP address?

No.  Clients do not have a domain name.  You may coincidentally be able to do a reverse IP lookup and find that some REMOTE_ADDR are associated with a domain, but it's not something that is dependable at all.  For example, which of my 32 web sites is my REMOTE_ADDR associated with?  My email is at Gmail, but so are millions of others.  It's just not information that exists in any way that you can use.

You're right..
That's what i'm gonna do.
Something like this:

$array = array(
"www.domain1.com" => gethostbyname("www.domain1.com")
,"www.domain2.pt" => gethostbyname("www.domain2.pt")
,"www.domain3.org" => gethostbyname("www.domain3.org")
);

while ($ip = current($array)) {
      if ($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR'] == $ip) echo "it's one of my clients";
      next($array);
}

Thx for the help :)

Before you write that while() loop you might want to look up foreach().  Just a thought.  Thanks for the points and thanks for using EE, ~Ray
