IP Probe

Analyze and extract provider information for an IP address.

This API will perform a live (realtime) lookup against the given IP using various network level checks. We then try to determine what type of provider this IP belongs to be by analyzing the data retrieved. For convenience, this API also performs an IP location lookup as well using the IP Info API.

One of the checks IP probe performs is a service scan of the host. In particular we use network level service probes to check if the IP is running common VPN or proxy software. This makes IP probe particularly good at detection of VPN and proxy services and is one of the key use cases for this API

Warning: Because this API performs a realtime check against an IP address it can be slow if the target network is slow. In some cases this API may take up to 30 seconds to complete however on average it will take around 2-5 seconds to complete IP analysis.
