Many applications benefit from using IP Geolocation to determine the geographic location of hosts on the Internet. This is a challenging problem because the IP addresses do not structurally contain information about the corresponding geographic locality. By knowing the location of consumers in real time, web sites can display localized content, server bandwidth balancing, improve click-through and sales, prevent Internet frauds, and implement many other solutions. This survey paper shows the study over basics of geolocation, different IP geolocation based techniques with their detailed methodology of working, pros and cons of existing techniques of IP geolocation. The methods, which we have reviewed in this paper are Shortest Ping, GeoPing, CBG, Statistical, Learning based, TBG and Octant. These methods are used for finding out the geographic location of the internet hosts.
