  1. Qustion 1. What's the best Geolocation service that is free to use? All I want is change my website page based on users' location. I see that HTML5 has this. http://www.w3schools.com/html/html5_geolocation.asp Is that the best way to go? Question 2. Say I have a website where User 1 can make a direct payment to User 2 and I as a website owner gets a small % of that transaction(along with Paypal's fee of course). How difficult is that to embedd in the website? What's the process like? Do I just get a Paypal Pro account integrate the API within my website? Do I need to add additional securities like SSL certificate? I would prefer to keep the transaction outside the website, if it means I don't have to worry about the site security.
  2. Easiest way to explain it would be to look at Groupon, LivingSocial and other deal sites. They show deals/records based on a user's city location. That's what I want to achieve. As far as I know, there are 3 things involved. 1. Getting a database with list of countries/regions/cities. 2. Country based dynamic dropdown option when posting a record on a website. 3. Showing records based on user's ip address. I am guessing to do this, one must have latitude and longitude listed in the countries database. I'm in the process of doing that. If you have any tips or information you would like to share, that would be great.
  3. This forum is "programming theory" so I assume this is the most appropriate place to put this. (Admins or someone feel free to move this if the location is incorrect.) The issue is that a site, example.com, loads slowly to international users because of its US-based host. So the thought is to buy... example.co.uk example.in example.br example.cn ... and host those domains on servers near the respective location. Or something like this. So the question is... what's the best way to handle users getting to the right site from the right location? There are google results out there that sort of address this question, but I'm wondering what has worked for others, or what you've heard of working. I think the solution will be to install a package on my server that can tell where the user is from, and to either redirect the user outright or to let them click a link to go to a more "local" version of the website. Thoughts? Have you handled this? Howso? Thanks
