Is it possible to select the culture based on the url given?


Eg, currently you select the culture and it redirects you to the specific homepage (/en-US or /en-GB) but is it possible to instead give the user the '/en-GB' url and it will change the culture to en-GB? That way i can change the culture for the user without them having to select it manually?


Alternatively, could you do it with the IP address location?

Yes, I assume it's possible to achieve by creating an additional implementation of the ICultureSelector interface, that will check for request url.

Regarding IP address location - yes, it's also possible the same way, but you will need a third-party service or library to check IP address location.
