I am wondering if I had a series of ads but I wanted to show them depending on country ip, what the best way of going about it would be, the ads are all in javascript, I can't use geoip as I do not have access to the WHM, just the cpanel

$hostname	= gethostbyaddr($_SERVER['REMOTE_ADDR']);
$country_code	= explode('.',$hostname);
$country_code	= $country_code[count($country_code)-1];

$query		= mysql_query("SELECT * FROM ads WHERE target_country='{$country_code}'");

// display the add...

This should get you started.
Line 1 gets the host by the IP. Then we split it up into an array at the dots ( . ). Then we take the last item in the array. Then we gets some ads from the database based on the country code they have. Then you need to code the rest yourself.
