You can use // to get the location details using the IP address in Laravel you can use it easily using GET request to the endpoint like 


so in Laravel you can use $req->ip(); to get the IP address of the requests then using HTTP class you can it the endpoint with GET method so the controller will be like 


namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Http;

class users_controller extends Controller {

 protected function create(Request $req){
 $ip = $req->ip();
 $res = Http::get('//'.$ip.'?token=[YOUR_TOKEN]');
 $city = $res['city'];
 $country = $res['country'];
 return $city .' '. $country;

Good luck

There are lots of IP API provider services available in the market. You can use any of them, but make sure below things.

  1. How many hits they are giving? free vs paid hits
  2. What is the price for each hit?
  3. What is your user interaction ratio and how many hits do you need per day?
  4. Check the accuracy before buying a package or going live with the API!
  5. Check the stability of the service you are using and user reviews for that website. Some might get down within a year or two, so avoid it.
  6. Check if the website you are choosing is available in your target country or not!

Here is the list of popular IP, City, State, Country, and ISP providers:
