    Okay - I have been using this for a while so now its time to share.
    I know you can get a free database from Maxmind, but their updates are always a week behind the paid for version so here is another database that is totally free and is updated daily:

    Great share btw, but I'm lost. been trying to figure out for hours on how to use the database to automatically geo-target visitors to certain sites, but i didnt understand a lot of things.

    can someone provide step by step on how to use the database to redirect visitors based on country?

    thanks.
