      Description

      Lets move away from geoplugin.net:

      1. it regularly goes down
      2. it is hosted on insecure HTTP
      3. it does not support IPv6
      4. it is not possible to run locally

      We can easily switch to freegeoip.net:

      1. It supports IPv6 lookups
      2. It is open source
      3. They provide a docker image to host locally
      4. It's hosted on HTTPS
