Fastest way to redirect users based on Geolocation - marc321 - 04-08-2015 04:32 PM

Hello everybody,

We are trying to find the fastest way to redirect visitors of our domain to another (external) URL based on their geolocation. Does anyone maybe know a fast service which can do that?

Thank you,
marc

do you mean localisation by ip address ?
To be fast you can query a binary Database to retrieve IP country code. Have a look to Maxmind or our solution http://www.fobec.com/apps/localiser-ip/.
The both returns country code in less than 10 ms (our in less than 1ms dichotomy db) and works with ipv4 / ipv6.
