The HOSTIP.INFO database would not be here if it weren't for the contributions of many. Below is a list of people who have given their contributions to build a better and more accessible database for your use. This is a very active project, and if you are interested in contributing, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Many thanks to:
Alessio Ricco recently released an iPhone App to plot ip addresses on Google Maps. It even has the capability to feed data back into Hostip - so you can help us improve just by using it!
Source [ Git ] Repository
There is a public Git repository available for all interested developers for the Firefox Hostip.info Plugin (and people wishing to see how this works). Please feel free to make any patches necessary - and also add anything if you feel inclined (this project was built by some excellent contributors, so don't hold back!) We used to have a repo for some miscellaneous scripts that interacted with the http://api.hostip.info/ interface, but the contributed source above made the repository obsolete.
Hostip.info takes not only time, but plenty of bandwidth and other resources (hosting, etc). If you would like to make a donation, no matter how large nor small, we always appreciate it! There are many pay-for-geo-ip services out there, but we truly believe a community effort really works best. Help us keep this service free. Thank you!
