    hello,

    when I am checking out visits in my clicky or statcounter account, sometimes it says the name of the company that visited my site.
    How is this possible?

    I'm sorry, but I didn't know "Kinetic Media NYC" and "Law offices of ___" are internet service providers.

    I've bought such service from MaxMind. I can't post links here yet just add .com to the MaxMind name. The prodcut name is "GEO IP Organization". You can connect their API or buy the fresh list of IP addresses with the company-IP address data.
