IP2Location™ Download Client

Automate Database Download

This is a command line script to download IP2Location™ database from the server. Subscribers can use this script to automate the download process without visiting the download area through browser.

We update IP2Location™ databases on the first day of the calendar month. Please download the database once a month during a random day from the first week of calendar month to avoid network congestion.

We update IP2Proxy™ databases daily. Please download database after 00:15 GMT for the latest daily update.
