You will always have the most accurate location data available for every API request, without having to worry about maintaining a local database. For Proxy, VPN or Tor exit address detection, we use machine learning & probability theory techniques using large datasets from different sources with 11,500+ networks from 2,200+ privacy providers.


The recommended way to install AS207111 Whois is through Composer.

composer require as207111/whois

Getting Started

First, request a free api access token from to get access to all api features, including all premium features, like privacy lookups.

Then initialize a new Client with your API Access Token and call the whois method to lookup any IPv4 or IPv6 address.

use AS207111\Whois\Client;

require_once __DIR__ . '/vendor/autoload.php';

$client = new Client('your-api-access-token');

$ipAddress = '2001:67c:770::';

$result = $client->whois(['ip_address' => $ipAddress]);

if ($result->isSuccess()) {
    $usingVpn = $result->getData()->privacy->proxy;

    if ($usingVpn) {
        print(sprintf('%s is using a proxy service like vpn, proxy or tor!', $ipAddress));
    } else {
        print(sprintf('%s is not using a proxy service!', $ipAddress));
} else {
    print('Cannot reach whois database.');
