Programmatically get your public IP address with ipify
« on: September 08, 2018, 11:01:54 am »
Ever needed to get your public IP address programmatically? Then, you can use the service called "ipify". Using this service will give you the following advantages.
  • You can use it without limit (even if you're doing millions of requests per minute).
  • It's always online and available, and its infrastructure is powered by Heroku, which means that regardless of whether the server running the API dies, or if there's an enormous tornado which destroys half of the east coast, ipify will still be running!
  • It works flawlessly with both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses, so no matter what sort of technology you're using, there won't be issues.
  • ipify is completely open source.
  • No visitor information is ever logged. Period.
  • Lastly, ipify is funded by Randall Degges, so there's no need to worry about the domain name disappearing in three years or anything like that: ipify is here to stay!
