What is ICP Filing and ICP License?
An ICP (Internet Content Provider) license is a registration number which allows a website to operate on a China-based hosting server. There are two categories of ICP certification.
1) An ICP Filing (also know as 'ICP Recordal' or ‘Bei’an’) is mandatory for all hosting applicants.
2) A Commercial ICP License is a second certification for websites that integrate online payments and e-commerce. Applicants will first need to apply for an ICP Filing in order to be eligible to apply for this license.
Why do I need an ICP in China?
Applying for a Chinese ICP license is a mandatory step if you wish to access a Chinese hosting server or deploy a China Content Delivery Network (CDN).
Obtaining a Chinese ICP license will allow you to optimize your website load speed after you deploy a China CDN and access China-based web hosting.
