1. What are the advantages of hosting in Mainland China?
- Hosting in China is the best option to reduce latency and improve load speeds in China. Load speed is crucial anywhere in the world and especially so in the mobile-centric market of China. Hosting a website in China can improve search engine visibility in the market, as Chinese search engines typically rank websites hosted in Mainland China much higher than those hosted outside of China.
2. Is an ICP Filing or ICP Commercial License a must-have for operating a website in China?
- An ICP Filing and an ICP Commercial License are two different matters in China. If you want your website to be hosted on a server in China, an ICP filing is mandatory, and if you want your website to function commercially, then you also need to apply for ICP Commercial License. Alibaba Cloud is experienced at helping international companies connect to digital China, and our professional ICP consulting support is just a click away.
3. Can users within Mainland China access my overseas-hosted website?
- Most often it's the case that your website should be accessible in Mainland China, but it may face some level of constraints in regards of high latency, intermittent unavailability, and limited SEO visibility depending on the location of where your website is hosted.
4. What companies can participate in the China Gateway Program?
- Any company whose global headquarters are not registered in mainland China can apply to participate in the program. However, the special program sales incentive provided by WeWork only applies to companies that rent ten desks or more for a period of at least one year.
5. What is the special program sales incentive provided by WeWork?
- All participating companies can receive the best rate available for WeWork memberships in the Greater China region.
