This is called Geolocation.

If this is for a commercial website then I suggest you pay for a subscription service. There are free databases out there but they seem to come and go.

One of the big companies providing this service is called MaxMind:

I use the IP geolocation database from http://www.ip2location.com . Their IP-Country Database only costs $49 per year.

If you prefer the free web service, you can take a look at http://www.fraudlabs.com/freelicense.aspx?PackageID=2t .

Hi,
Many free online sites provide these services!!!! I use http://www.ip-details.com/ for my site. It is reliable and also fast!!! You can also have Your Viewers IP Address, and IP Address details(country, ISP, address, etc.) displayed on your website by just copying the code from this site on your webpage!!!
