    Hi, I am creating my own landing page, my problem is that I want to detect automatically the Geographical IP location of my client. Any suggestion on how to do this?

    A better (free) solution would be to use the MaxMind GeoLite Country Database

    Pretty darn accurate (although no GeoIP db that I have ever seen is 100% accurate) and easy to implement on your site. Did I mention it is free?

    Yes, maxmind is the defacto standard. Make life easy for yourself, go php/pear/net_geoip and have a solution before Domino's delivers that pizza.
