Purchase Databases

GeoIP databases may be purchased a la carte, or with a monthly or yearly subscription.

Purchase a new GeoIP2 database

If you are a new customer of MaxMind, or if you are an existing customer looking to purchase a GeoIP2 database you haven't purchased before, you should use the site checkout on our main website.

Look at the product pages on our main website to find the database(s) you would like purchase, and click the buttons to add the subscription(s) to your cart. You can also learn more about our IP geolocation and IP intelligence database offerings on our Knowledge Base.

Once you have the database subscription(s) you would like to purchase in your shopping cart, you can click on the blue "Checkout" button. You will be prompted to sign in to your MaxMind account (for existing customers), or create a new account.

If you would like to purchase the GeoIP Anonymous IP database for proxy detection, the GeoIP Enterprise database, or a commercial license for any of our databases, you can reach out to our sales team.

Purchase database updates and subscriptions of a GeoIP2 database you have bought before through the account portal as an existing customer
