Official Python library for Ipregistry

Project description


Ipregistry Python Client Library

License Actions Status PyPI

This is the official Python client library for the Ipregistry IP geolocation and threat data API, allowing you to lookup your own IP address or specified ones. Responses return multiple data points including carrier, company, currency, location, timezone, threat information, and more.

Starting version 3 of the library, support for Python 2 has been dropped and the library requires Python 3.6+.

Getting Started

You'll need an Ipregistry API key, which you can get along with 100,000 free lookups by signing up for a free account at


pip install ipregistry

Quick Start

Single IP Lookup

from ipregistry import IpregistryClient

client = IpregistryClient("YOUR_API_KEY")
ipInfo = client.lookup("")

Batch IP Lookup

from ipregistry import IpregistryClient

client = IpregistryClient("YOUR_API_KEY")
results = client.lookup(["", "", "2001:67c:2e8:22::c100:68b"])
for ipInfo in results:

Origin IP Lookup

from ipregistry import IpregistryClient

client = IpregistryClient("YOUR_API_KEY")
ipInfo = client.lookup()

More advanced examples are available in the samples folder.


This Ipregistry client library has built-in support for in-memory caching. By default caching is disabled. Below are examples to enable and configure a caching strategy. Once enabled, default cache strategy is to memoize up to 2048 lookups for at most 10min. You can change preferences as follows:

Enabling caching

Enable caching by passing an instance of InMemoryCache:

from ipregistry import InMemoryCache, IpregistryClient

client = IpregistryClient("YOUR_API_KEY", cache=InMemoryCache(maxsize=2048, ttl=600))

Disabling caching

Disable caching by passing an instance of NoCache:

from ipregistry import IpregistryClient, NoCache

client = IpregistryClient("YOUR_API_KEY", cache=NoCache())


All Ipregistry exceptions inherit IpregistryError class.

Main subtypes are ApiError and ClientError.

Errors of type ApiError include a code field that maps to the one described in the Ipregistry documentation.

Filtering bots

You might want to prevent Ipregistry API requests for crawlers or bots browsing your pages.

A manner to proceed is to identify bots using the User-Agent header. To ease this process, the library includes a utility method:

from ipregistry import UserAgent


Other Libraries

There are official Ipregistry client libraries available for many languages including Java, Javascript, and more.
