If for any reason, you want to know the location of an IP address, it’s geographical position, latitudes or longitudes, here is a desktop utility for Windows which will be useful.
Known as IP Locator – the program can be used to track the IP address of anyone or find the complete information regarding any IP address on a Google Map. The program can also be used to find the ISP (Internet service provider) of a domain, host name or the WHO Is information of any website from desktop.
Application: There are times when you may want to know the exact location of an IP address on a world map. For example: I regularly receive spam and vulgar comments on this blog which does not contain a valid email address. In most of the cases, I simply delete the spam comments because reading each and every spam comment can kill your time and productivity.
But when you receive strange emails from your site’s contact form, I use this utility to know the location of the commentator. It works like this – the comment or email tells me what is the IP address of the sender. Now to know the actual location of the IP address or hostname , all I have to do is enter the complete IP address in the IP locator window.
The program works with Windows7, Windows Vista and Windows XP. Give IP Locator a try and let us know which tool do you use to track the location of an IP address or to know more information regarding a web host.
