you can see that the IP2Location, IPligence and IPAddressLabs services locate the IP in Amsterdam, while MaxMind-GeoLiteCity locate the IP in the Russian Federation.
I know that it is not a big issue as the Droplet is really in Netherlands. But because of Data Protection Law and Privacy and Electronic Communications EU Directive, I should have the server in Europe (and also provide confidence to my customers that it is really in Europe)
