The IP geolocation of my VPS is different from the one I ordered. Why is this?

IP location services are used to determine the approximate physical location of an IP address. This is done by looking up information from IP databases that contain records of the geographical locations associated with each IP address.

IP location services can be used for a variety of purposes, such as providing targeted advertising, tracking the source of malicious activity, and helping to prevent fraud. By using this technology, businesses can better understand their customers and improve their online security. Additionally, law enforcement agencies use IP location services to investigate cyber crimes and track down suspects.

These services use databases of known IP addresses and their associated locations to make their determinations. However, the accuracy of these services can vary depending on the specific service and the information they have in their databases. Some services may show incorrect or outdated information about the geographic location of an IP address, so it is important to check multiple sources before relying on any single service.

In this case, the website is displaying the results from different IP location services, most of them shows correct information about an IP, but some services may show a different location. This might be due to the inaccuracies in the IP location service databases or the use of a virtual location.

Here are links to some other popular services that offer IP geolocation:

Please note that some of these services may offer both a free and a paid version of their service and the links above are to their website, where you can find more information about the service and pricing plans available.
