What is geolocation useful for?

Geolocation can be useful in many scenarios. For example, it can be used to:

There are many, many possible use cases for geolocation.

How accurate are the results?

Geolocation results are pretty accurate at country level, while they are less accurate at city level, especially for mobile devices.

The location of an IP address depends on the location of who controls that IP address, and on whether the device is using a proxy or VPN, for example. At this time, it is not possible for anyone other than who controls the IP address to accurately determine the exact location of a device, but only an approximate location. With geolocation tools you cannot get information such as the name of the person or other personal details.

We use data from multiple sources to try and provide results as accurate as possible.

How does it work?

The journey to find out the approximate location of an IP address starts with the Regional Internet Registries (RIR), that is, organizations that manage all the IP addresses in various regions of the world, specifically:

Each of these organizations is responsible for the distribution of the IP addresses in their respective region (the allocation of IP addresses globally is overseen by another organization called IANA, or Internet Assigned Numbers Authority).

While the primary source of IP information are the RIRs, geolocation services such as Hatuko also use data contributed by ISPs and other sources in order to improve accuracy. But admittedly there is a lot of guesswork involved, as well.

Do you support lookup of IPv6 addresses?

Yes, we do support any valid IPv4 or IPv6 IP address.

Do you offer a free plan?

Yes, Hatuko is completely free at this time and allows you to perform 10,000 API requests per day.
