Sometimes on a shared hosting environment, your website IP might not be enough to configure the IP restricted key. In these cases, you will be shown a popup message like:
Geocoding failed because `This IP, site or mobile application is not authorized to use this API Key. Request received from IP address *.*.*.* with empty referer.
