What is the difference between GeoIP2 and GeoLite2?

The differences between GeoIP2 and GeoLite2 are the level of accuracy, breadth of data, official support, price, and licensing rights. We incorporate additional data sources when generating GeoIP2 data, so even when they’ve both updated the same day, the commercial GeoIP2 database is more accurate.

GeoIP2 data is otherwise in the same format as GeoLite2 data, and it uses the same integration methods. In that regard, the GeoIP2 databases are essentially drop-in replacements for the free GeoLite2 databases, and the GeoIP2 Precision web services can be used in place of the GeoLite2 web services by updating the URI in your GeoLite2 queries.
