Web Service API calls over SSL (HTTPS)

All the geoPlugin IP geolocation and currency web services are available over secured sockets layer (SSL).

To use the SSL web services, an inexpensive key is required. Note - the domain activation key is NOT an SSL web service key

Once subscribed to the SSL web service, you will automatically receive an access key to the email address used during payment.

To use your SSL key, simply add the request var k=<YOUR_KEY> to all requests to the SSL web service located at

For example, to call the JSON web service with an IP address to look up, with the fictitious key Fqw9ch1k6Han28xP you would for the request as such:

or using jQuery:

or using Javascript:

<script language="JavaScript" src="" type="text/javascript"></script>

Note the above key is fictitious and will not work.
The format of the requests is identical to all the other web services.

Please note that using the SSL service is still bound by the 120 requests per minute limit.
To remove these limits, a premium subscription is required.
