Alibaba Cloud Expert Online: How to Obtain an ICP License

Created#
More Posted time:Nov 23, 2016 14:41 PM
Are you worried about the slow running speed of your website in China? Are you unable to access a China-based CDN or web server because you do not have an ICP license?  

Overseen by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT), an ICP license is mandatory for all content providers wishing to access hosting or CDN products in Mainland China. Therefore, if you are planning to expand your business into China, you should strongly consider obtaining ICP certification.

As the application interface is currently only available in Chinese-language and each province in China has its own ICP license regulations, it is difficult and problematic for applicants to lodge and complete an ICP lodging application without any support. In order to help applicants successfully obtain an ICP license in the shortest amount of time possible, the Alibaba Cloud ICP Support Team is on-call to respond to your questions. Any problems in relation to obtaining an ICP license can be raised here in this thread, and experts from the Alibaba Cloud’s ICP Support Team will answer your questions as soon as possible.

About some normal questions, you can check ICP Filing FAQs first.

Timeframe:
This thread will run until Jan 31st 2017.

Can a WFOE corporation get an ICP in China? In FTZ or outside FTZ?

Since June of 2015, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) announced that Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprises (WFOEs) can enter the Chinese e-commerce sector with a commercial ICP license.  A regular ICP license can be used by the WOFE for other company web applications.
A WFOE registered in Main Land China can get an ICP license whether it’s registered in the Free Trade Zone or not.  Please note that all ICP license are subject to confirmation by the MIIT. Here is the detail for replying ICP License.

fridayyo:Do I need an ICP filing to deploy a mobile application in China?回到原帖
ICP Filing is for websites. Mobile applications usually do not need to apply for ICP Licenses.  If your application relates to a domain name (such as downloading from a website or e-commerce) it will be necessary to apply for an ICP License for this website.  If you still have questions or concerns, please post more details here or contacts us directly through your Alibaba Cloud account.

Yes. You can apply the ICP Licenses for multiple websites simultaneously if they are under the same server. You need to fill in the filing information of your three websites together when you submit the ordering.  If they are on separate servers this should be done separately.

We do not require the website to be complete to apply for the ICP license.   However, we do require the domain. To minimize approval time it’s best to have DNS configured for the required domain.

If you have a Chinese presence like a WFOE in China (which allows you to get an ICP license) you should consider moving the server to China or using our CDN to deliver content to China. If you have the server in China you will probably need a CDN to deliver content back to Canada.  An alternative solution (where no ICP license is required) is to host your site from our HK region. This should give you usable speeds for users in Canada and China.

If you are talking about applying from a different Alibaba Console account it is irrelevant.  When applying for the ICP filing you create a new account on the ICP Filing System Platform to do this.  This can be linked to the same mailbox as the console or a different one.

I want to have a good speed for people visiting my personal website and got confused about registering ICP using Aliyun. I clicked on the free trial for ECS and couldn't get the ICP application #. It seems I need to pay for the number, but I may only need a CDN or DNS server in China. Is there any way to get the ICP for free in my case? Thanks!

Alibaba Cloud will only do the ICP filing for CDN if we host the paid ECS subscription (min 1-year) web site. The ICP filing for the web site is valid for the CDN.  Currently we do not have DNS services available unless you purchase your domain name through our Cloud Web Hosting package.
