Abstract Geolocation API

Using Abstract API’s IP Geolocation API in JavaScript

If you want to learn more about where your website visitors are coming from or to personalize content based on location, using an IP geolocation API can be very helpful.

One of the APIs you can use is Abstract API’s IP geolocation API. In this post, we’ll show you how to use this API in JavaScript.

API Documentation

First, you’ll need to get an API key. You can get a free API key here by creating an account.

Once you have an account, you can access the IP Geolocation API docs and learn more about how to use the API.

JavaScript Example

Here is an example code in JavaScript:

const apiKey = 'YOUR_API_KEY';
const ipAddress = '';

const url = `https://ipgeolocation.abstractapi.com/v1/?api_key=${apiKey}&ip_address=${ipAddress}`;

    .then((response) => response.json())
    .then((data) => console.log(data));

In this example, we’re using the fetch API to make a request to the IP geolocation API. We pass in the API key and the IP address we want to geolocate in the URL.

When the response comes back, we convert it to JSON and log it to the console.


Using an IP geolocation API like the one offered by Abstract API can help you get valuable information about your website visitors. The JavaScript example we provided should get you started, but you can find more examples and information in the IP Geolocation API docs.
