Would there be a way to do a city/state/country code lookup based on
zip/country input by the user? My site will be international, hence the
reason for asking the user to input their country.
the user inputs the zip/post-code and country, which gets saved to the
database and then the Google geocode API will convert this to city, state
and country and print the output to

(unless you're crazy), but I just became curious after my client said he'd
prefer to keep an old .us domain while promotion is needed for a different
I advised him to get a .com or .net and set up a permanent

"fr.domainname.com") — but my boss is concerne
