Test the Web Services

There are several approaches to testing the web services:

Learn more about testing with GeoIP2 or GeoLite2 web services below.


Watch a short video explaining the testing methods available for the GeoIP2 web services.

If you are testing with the actual GeoIP2 or GeoLite2 web services, you can take the following approaches:

Manual testing methods

You can do a quick test of the GeoIP2 web services manually by looking up IP addresses through your account portal.

Watch a short video explaining how to use the IP lookup tools in the account portal to do manual testing of the GeoIP2 web services.

For step-by-step instructions on how to use the IP lookup tools in the account portal, read our article on looking up IPs with GeoIP2 web services.

Integration testing

You can do a full test of the GeoIP2 web services by integrating using one of our client APIs, or our REST API. Read a quick-start technical integration guide on our developer's site.

Watch a short video about our developer’s resources for integrating the GeoIP2 web services.

Our API documentation includes comprehensive instructions with code examples. Your account ID number and license key, available through the account portal [direct link, login required], would be used to authenticate API requests. Learn more about license keys.

Our APIs handle sending a request and receiving back the response. Implementing the data we return in the query response would then be handled in your own custom integration code.
