    Okay guys, this is probably common knowledge to many of you, but as I have said before, I'm not well versed technically, I'm more marketing proned. With that said...

    Is there a way to show users from a couple countries a different webpage than users in another country? I'm pretty sure this is quite simple to implement, but I'm not sure how to go about doing it. Basically its IP cloaking if I'm not mistaken. Also, I don't have a clue how to know which IP's come from which country, though I'm sure there's a place that lists such information and I could just input that IP range into my site so that it shows another page to those specific countries.

    If someone could post a how-to guide, I'd be more than willing to +rep you.

    Thanks!

    You can also try ultradns for a professional level GEO IP redirection service. The requests will automatically be forwarded to a different page based on your GEO IP parameters.

    It depends on what script are using now.
    You can detect user's IP/country via API (Application Programming Interface) from Maximind and/or IP2Location.
