View Full Version : Visitor Statistics
08-17-2004, 09:14 AM
I have looked at the visitor statistics for 12 Aug and my website was hit by IP address 184.108.40.206. The visitor statistics have no description of who this is. When I key the IP address into http://whois.bw.org I get the netname of CONTROL-RISK-GROUP This is really useful info, how do I get this from statcounter.
Many thanks in advance

Hmmm... that seems to be one of those shifty IP addresses which resolves to different ISP's depending where you ask.
The thing is that the result of the function call gethostbyaddr that performs a reverse DNS lookup, returns no ISP name. This is what is used by Statcounter.
You can check this at http://www.dnsstuff.com/tools/ptr.ch?ip=220.127.116.11
The only way to get more information is to query multiple databases like ARIN, RIPE, etc., which is what http://whois.bw.org/ is doing.
