IP Lookup : Server Side vs Client Side

ipapi is a service that helps you find the location of an IP address. Broadly speaking, there are 2 ways to use the service (REST API) :

Server Side

  • In this case, your backend server communicates with our API endpoint.

Client Side

  • In this case, your user (the client) directly communicates with our API (e.g. with Javascript code embedded in your webpage or mobile app)
