IP Locator is a Dashboard widget that will provide lookup of IP address geolocation information using the HostIP.info API.
Ever check your web logs and wonder where in the world is 22.214.171.124? Answer: Guangzhou, Guangdong, China. How about 126.96.36.199? Answer: Vienna, Austria.
Wonder no more! Through the magic of geolocation, IP Locator takes that mysterious IP address and tells you where that hit to your web site (or intruder on your network!) resides.
