Update Geolocation DB

0

Hi, I work in an ISP Recently we have rented an IP segment, we are doing the paperwork to formalize the transfer to my region, however, in the meanwhile we are using the IPs.

We detected that AWS CloudFront is providing a Geo restriction to some websites, because Route 53 is using the previous IP's Geolocation DB.

How could I proceed to indicates AWS the new IPs location?

Thanks so much your help and support

Hello There

I understand you detected that AWS CloudFront is providing a Geo restriction to some websites, because Route 53 is using the previous IP's Geolocation DB, So you're seeing geolocation for some of your IP ranges is incorrect in AWS and you want to update it with a correct location.

Please note: CloudFront uses Maxmind tool database to determine the location of the IP's [1], If you find any of your IP's location is shown incorrectly in Maxmind database[2] then you can log a request with Maxmind to correct the location of the IP’s [3].

I suggest that you also view some documentation on CloudFront geographic restrictions feature that lets you control distribution of your content at the country level for all files that you’re distributing with a given web distribution.[4]

I hope this information is helpful.

Best regards,

Mfanelo
