    IP Based Image

    Hi, i have a banner area on my website where i would like to display an image. I would like to display a different image in the banner area, depending on a users' location.

    I have 4 different images:

    01 - usa_banner.jpg (default)
    02 - europe_banner.jpg
    03 - uk_banner.jpg
    04 - australia_banner.jpg

    If a user views the site from a country outside of the top 4 areas, then i would like to display the default usa_banner.jpg image.

    I have created my site using codeigniter. What is the best way to work out the IP ranges etc. Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance...

    Lightbulb From Google and Stack Overflow

    I searched your query on Google and found a great Stack Overflow thread. In summary here is the solutions:

    You can use APIs:

    Hostinfo API:
    http://www.hostip.info/use.html

    Or you can use a local database on your server, it does need to be updated regularly though.

    If you have money, you can use the Maxmind GeoAPI built-in to your PHP server.

    You shouldn't use an API when you already have existing data on your machine to do this.
    /usr/share/GeoIP/GeoIP.dat

    you can use apache2's mod_geoip (apt-get install apache2-mod-geoip or yum install mod_geoip.x86_64)

    then, restart apache2. and now
    nano /var/www/html/geoiptest.php
    PHP Code:
    <html>
    <body>
    <?php
    $country_name 
    apache_note("GEOIP_COUNTRY_NAME");
    print 
    "Country: " $country_name;
    ?>
    </body>
    </html>
    It worked like a charm for me.

    Country: United States
    I use (, ; : -) as I please- instead of learning the English language specification: I decided to learn Scheme and Java;
