I googled my site (residing on Web379 Singapore shared server) and found some "whois" based sites that give stats for any domain, and they all claim my site's server is located in Langfang, China. (one example - http://www.viewdns.info/iplocation/?ip=119.81.12.86 )

Assuming this is incorrect, I was wondering if there's an easy explanation for the mistake, and/or any way to have the correct info displayed instead.

Thanks!

Geolocation is not a standard and so it is likely the provider you are using has wrong info. Local whois and ip2location show the right info.

Okay, I figured it might be something like that. But I'm still surprised that these IP lookup sites can be off by 3000km.
