    Does anyone here use a particular service to get accurate location (City, State, Country) on registration? We don't mind paying for a good service that can help us improve the location data we have on users.

    geo ip location is tricky as there's more than one database folks can use and they aren't all updated in timely manner

    for server/bash scripting i favour ipinfo.io
    FYI, centmin mod cminfo command uses ipinfo.io :)

    Code (Text):
    cminfo

    That looks like a pretty good service. Will give that a go.

    MaxMind is a good service if you don't mind paying a fee.
    They also have a free version although it's not as accurate because they don't update it as frequently.
