Display Visitor's Proxy Using IP2Proxy Web Service

In this tutorial, we use the IP2Proxy™ Web Service to detect proxy details from the visitor's IP address. Instead of loading the full database, you can also lookup IP address via our hosted web service.

IP2Proxy™ Web API uses a single web interface to perform the lookup logic. The protocol used is HTTP GET. You can test this API as easy as using a web browser.

api.ip2proxy.com/?ip=<ip_address>&key=<your_api_key>&package=<package>&format=<format>

 

PARAMETERS
Name Description
key (required) API key. Please use "demo" for evaluation.
ip (optional) IP address (IPv4) for lookup purpose. If not present, the server IP address will be used for the lookup.
package (optional) If not present, the web service will assume the PX1 package query. Valid value: PX1 | PX2 | PX3 | PX4
format (optional) If not present, json format will be returned as the search result. Valid value: json | xml

Below are the sample codes written in PHP to query and display user's proxy information.

 

						<?php
						 $host= gethostname();
						 $ipAddress = gethostbyname($host);
						 $urlTemplate = 'http://api.ip2proxy.com/?ip=' . $ipAddress .  '&key=demo&package=PX4';
						 
						 // replace the "%s" with real IP address
						 $urlToCall = sprintf( $urlTemplate, $ipAddress);

						 $rawJson = file_get_contents( $urlToCall );

						 $proxy = json_decode( $rawJson, true );

						 if(isset($proxy['cityName'])){
							 
							if($proxy['cityName']=="-"){
								echo '<center>You are in local server!</center><br>';
								echo '<script language="javascript">';
								echo 'alert("You are in local server!")';
								echo '</script>';
							}
						}else{
							echo 'IP Address parsing error!';
