A reader asks:
My question for you is how can we track the country name or country code from IP Address using Coldfusion?
There are a variety of ways of solving this problem (and I know that my readers, as always, will chime in), so I’ll focus on how I solved it for a recent client of ours. We used a product called geoLocator, created by the ColdFusion King of International Issues, Paul Hastings. The geoLocator CFC will return a wealth of information about the user’s country, all based on IP, which means it is not perfect, but works “close enough” I’d say for most uses. I had no trouble integrating it into our site, and you can’t beat the price (free).
