View Full Version : get user's geographical location and redirect

11-04-2007, 05:23 PM
I remember looking into this a few years ago, but never really found a solution......not sure if there is a way to do it now????

Basically I have a website that is in English and German. Is there a way to determine where the user has accessed the site from then redirect to a different URL - possibly with JavaScript or something?

I.E. I'd like to redirect to "..../de/index.php" if the user is from Germany.

Not sure if this can be accessed through browser settings? Or IP address?

Merci beaucoup.

I'm pretty sure it has to do something with the user's IP.
See this link: http://ip-to-country.webhosting.info/
