IP Investigator

Check if an IP address is hosting Proxies, Bots or Malware. Starting at ~$0/hour.

Identify Scanners and Malicious Spiders

IP Investigator will let you input an IP to find out if it is known to launch spam bots, comment spammers, referral spammers, and exploit scanners.

If you’re seeking to actively block (not just investigate) these kinds of attacks, we recommend Expedited WAF

Developer Level Support Standard

Chat with someone who doesn’t use a checklist. We are developers supporting developers.

Fast Response Times

Find out if the user on the other end of the HTTP connection is a bot or not right away. Get the fastest possible results.

Soft Limits

When your usage spikes is not the time to find out that you’ve run out of requests. We won’t cut you off for temporarily breaking your plan limits.

Works great with IP 2 Earth

IP Investigator identifies IP addresses that are explicitly on bad networks or otherwise compromised. IP 2 Earth can help find more subtle issues when used to compare actual locations versus data points like shipping or billing address.

Constant Updates

IP Investigator collates dozens of disparate data sets and security reports every day to keep up with new proxy providers, bot farms, and other bad hosts.

Detect Proxy, VPN and Tor Nodes

While there are many legitimate reasons to use services that cloak your actual IP address, they are also widely used by those attempting to defraud or break into your service.

DShield IDS Data

Responses compare IP addresses to values reported to DShields collective Intrusion Detection System logs.

Historical Data

As hosts get cleaned up, malware is removed and put back into circulation. IP Investigator reports how long ago they were compromised.

Case Study

We’ve partnered with Wafris.org to help power their IP Lookup service.
