There is a free version, but it isn't as accurate, and doesn't get updated
as often.

Be careful that your code does error out if IP country is not found. One
prime example is local testing, which will be a block outside of the ranges
in the databases. You will likely find this exception thrown early, as you
will likely be testing locally, but it si something to consider.

Indeed. That's the one I linked to.

But, even their for-pay database isn't too accurate.
It consistently places me in Miami, even though I'm in the Dominican Republic.

The problem is that it registers IP address ranges by the *owner* of the range,
instead of by the physical location which the IP range serves.
