How to get the geographical location of an IP address.

How to get the geographical location of an IP address. This simple command will get this for you.

[jason@darknet:~] curl ipinfo.io/203.113.124.148 ; echo ""
{
  "ip": "203.113.124.148",
  "hostname": "No Hostname",
  "city": "",
  "region": "",
  "country": "TH",
  "loc": "13.7500,100.4667",
  "org": "AS9737 TOT Public Company Limited"
}

In this example, I am getting information about Google`s DNS IP.

[jason@darknet:~] curl ipinfo.io/8.8.8.8 ; echo ""
{
  "ip": "8.8.8.8",
  "hostname": "google-public-dns-a.google.com",
  "city": "Mountain View",
  "region": "California",
  "country": "US",
  "loc": "37.3845,-122.0881",
  "org": "AS15169 Google Inc.",
  "postal": "94040"
}

This command will get information about an IP address from the ipinfo.io website. This is a useful way to get information about your own IP address, or an IP address from a logfile.
