Tutorial: How to Use an IP Location Finding API with Go

To use an IP location finding API, you need to send a GET request to the API's endpoint. Here's how you can do it using Go:

package main

import (

type LocationData struct {
	City struct {
		Names map[string]string `json:"names"`
	} `json:"city"`
	Continent struct {
		Code string `json:"code"`
	} `json:"continent"`
	Country struct {
		Names map[string]string `json:"names"`
	} `json:"country"`
	Location struct {
		Latitude   float64 `json:"latitude"`
		Longitude  float64 `json:"longitude"`
		TimeZone   string  `json:"time_zone"`
		WeatherCode string `json:"weather_code"`
	} `json:"location"`
	Subdivisions []struct {
		Names map[string]string `json:"names"`
	} `json:"subdivisions"`
	Traits struct {
		AutonomousSystemNumber       int    `json:"autonomous_system_number"`
		AutonomousSystemOrganization string `json:"autonomous_system_organization"`
		ConnectionType              string `json:"connection_type"`
		Isp                         string `json:"isp"`
		UserType                    string `json:"user_type"`
	} `json:"traits"`

func main() {
	ip := "IP_Address" // Replace with the IP Address you want to lookup
	token := "YOUR_API_KEY" // Replace with your actual API key

	url := "https://api.findip.net/" + ip + "/?token=" + token

	resp, err := http.Get(url)
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Println("Error:", err)
	defer resp.Body.Close()

	body, err := ioutil.ReadAll(resp.Body)
	if err != nil {
		fmt.Println("Error:", err)

	var data LocationData
	json.Unmarshal(body, &data)

	fmt.Println("City Name:", data.City.Names["en"])
	fmt.Println("Continent Code:", data.Continent.Code)
	fmt.Println("Country Name:", data.Country.Names["en"])
	fmt.Println("Latitude:", data.Location.Latitude)
	fmt.Println("Longitude:", data.Location.Longitude)
	fmt.Println("Time Zone:", data.Location.TimeZone)
	fmt.Println("Weather Code:", data.Location.WeatherCode)
	for _, subdivision := range data.Subdivisions {
		if name, ok := subdivision.Names["en"]; ok {
			fmt.Println("Subdivision Name:", name)
	fmt.Println("Autonomous System Number:", data.Traits.AutonomousSystemNumber)
	fmt.Println("Autonomous System Organization:", data.Traits.AutonomousSystemOrganization)
	fmt.Println("Connection Type:", data.Traits.ConnectionType)
	fmt.Println("ISP:", data.Traits.Isp)
	fmt.Println("User Type:", data.Traits.UserType)

Remember to replace 'IP_Address' and 'YOUR_API_KEY' with the actual IP address you want to verify and your actual API key.
