    First post! Here goes....

    Is it possible to block visitors from a certain country from using a download link?

    The laws in my country does not allow casinos or marketing of casinos with real money play. That´s why i have to find a way to block the swedish visitors from using the download link.
    Can i add a script to the links?

    ...by the way, this forum is really great.

    Cheers & thanks in advance, Terése

    Hi footzool,

    It is not really possible to filter out people coming into your site. I guess you could probably use their IP address to trace the location of their ISP, and then block these people from acessing your site. This would, however, be a big job to implement.

    What most people here tend to do is to have an obvious disclaimer stating that people from countries where it is illegal to gamble online should not use the web site. You should also mention that you cannot be held responsible for people using the content/links on the site if they are not allowed to.

    The best thing to do in this situation is to consult a lawyer in your country and get him/her to let you know what you need to do to keep your site legal and blame free. If you put the responsability back onto your visitors to only use your site if they're allowed to do so.

    Hope this helps!

    http://www.phpadsnew.com is a free banner rotator that can be hooked up to an IP targeting database.

    You can purchase a copy of the IP dB with monthly updates from http://www.maxmind.com - they did have a free copy which is updated yearly but not sure if it's still there.

    Because phpAdsnew can be used to insert HTML ads (with javascript and PHP too if you need it) you can actualy target any type of script, it doesn't have to be an advertisement.

    So you could get phpAdsnew to insert a script at the top of the page that would direct all swedish visitors to a page to explain the issue. You could also use phpAdsnew to insert you download link for non-Swedish visitors.

    With a bit of creative thought you can use the IP targeting of phpAdsNew to easily add any type of HTML or script to your page

    Hi

    I would contact Referback (affiliate program). Their casinos don't allow South Africans and no matter what link, what banner, or even if you type the casino URL in, you are always redirected to a local search engine. They must be able to do this by region.
    Have a wonderful day

    Default I know of someone who has a solution

    One of our affiliates displays different banners for different I.P. numbers depending on the country. http://www.777-best-online-casinos.com
    I am at Costa Rica and I see Hampton Casino at 6 position, other users might see the link to Hampton at a different position if at all. This is not rotating links.
