If you are deriving any commercial features or business activities using IP2Location database or IP2Proxy database or software, you will need to have Redistribution License for commercial use. We offer two types of Redistribution License that allows software developers to include our solutions within their own products for external use. With this license you can embed our database products within your own software program either as "SaaS" or "On-Premise" installation. The Saas Redistribution License is suitable for hosted service with unlimited number of end-users. The On-Premise Redistribution License is suitable for database installation in client server, available as prepaid number of licenses.

For certain sectors including, but not limited to information security, social networks and advertising networks, we will need you to acquire SaaS Redistribution License as the only licensing type we supported within your organization.
