Since Sitecore 8.1 the Geo IP lookup service is pre-configured. If you don't purchase the service and look into your logs you see the following error
The remote name could not be resolved: 'discovery-ces.cloud.sitecore.net'
To fix it, simply add a patch config file to disable the service. Have a look at the Sitecore documentation if you need further information about the geolocation service.
<configuration xmlns:patch="http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/"> <sitecore> <settings> <setting name="Analytics.PerformLookup"> <patch:attribute name="value">false</patch:attribute> </setting> </settings> </sitecore> </configuration>
