There is one article of IP API - HTTP GET Request to get location based on IP address.

I am trying the same in a web application of framework 3.5 which is not in favour of HTTP Requests & Response.

Please advise

You can use ipstack API to get the geolocation for the given IP address using the .Net framework.

Please see the IPStack documentation.

Sample Code:

 private LocationDetails_IpStack GetGeolocationInfo(string ipAddress)
            if (string.IsNullOrWhiteSpace(ipAddress))
                ipAddress = Request.ServerVariables["HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR"];
                if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(ipAddress))
                    string[] ipRange = ipAddress.Split(',');
                    int le = ipRange.Length - 1;
                    string trueIP = ipRange[le];
                    ipAddress = Request.ServerVariables["REMOTE_ADDR"];

            LocationDetails_IpStack geolocationInfo = new LocationDetails_IpStack();
            var Ip_Stack_Url = "http://api.ipstack.com/" + ipAddress + "?access_key=<YOUR_KEY>";  // - This is a sample IP address. You can pass yours if you want to test

            // Use HttpClient to get the details from the Json response
            using (HttpClient client = new HttpClient())
                client.DefaultRequestHeaders.Accept.Add(new System.Net.Http.Headers.MediaTypeWithQualityHeaderValue("application/json"));

                // Pass API address to get the Geolocation details 
                client.BaseAddress = new Uri(Ip_Stack_Url);
                HttpResponseMessage response = client.GetAsync(Ip_Stack_Url).GetAwaiter().GetResult();
                // If API is success and receive the response, then get the location details
                if (response.IsSuccessStatusCode)
                    geolocationInfo = response.Content.ReadAsAsync<LocationDetails_IpStack>().GetAwaiter().GetResult();
            return geolocationInfo;
