This page guesses the country that is primarily responsible for the information on a web page using a geoprovenance inference algorithm. The publisher of each URL that you input in the search box below is geolocated by querying the domain contact from a whois search, by looking up the headquarters of the company on Wikidata and using the domain suffix (e.g. '.uk') as well as three other algorithms to determine where the domain is from. When combined, these six different methods achieve 91% accuracy.
