The Alibaba Cloud ICP Filing system allows you to apply for an Internet Content Provider (ICP) filing, modify ICP filing information, cancel an ICP filing, and claim an ICP filing. To use the Alibaba Cloud ICP Filing system to apply for an ICP filing, you must register an Alibaba Cloud account first based on the entity information and actual needs. You can then use this account to manage the ICP filing information in the Alibaba Cloud ICP Filing system.

Notes

  • Each Alibaba Cloud account can be used to apply for an ICP filing for one entity only (organization or individual). However, each entity can apply for ICP filings for multiple websites. If you need to apply for ICP filings for multiple entities, use different Alibaba Cloud accounts to submit the applications. We recommend that you register an Alibaba Cloud account for each entity, and use the corresponding account to apply for and manage ICP filings for all the websites of the entity.
  • You can use your Alibaba Cloud account that is registered on the Alibaba Cloud site to log on to the Alibaba Cloud ICP Filing system and apply for an ICP filing. However, you must use the Alibaba Cloud mobile application to upload documents. After you download and install the Alibaba Cloud mobile application, use it to scan the QR code on the upload documents page. You do not need to log on to the Alibaba Cloud mobile application to perform this step. We recommend that you register an Alibaba Cloud account on the Alibaba Cloud China site to apply for ICP filings and manage ICP information.
  • The Alibaba Cloud mobile application allows you to apply for an ICP filing for your website for the first time, or websites whose ICP filing is not registered through Alibaba Cloud. You must use an Alibaba Cloud account that is registered on the Alibaba Cloud site to log on to the mobile application to perform operations. You cannot use an Alibaba Cloud account that is registered on the Alibaba Cloud International site. We recommend that you register an Alibaba Cloud account on the Alibaba Cloud site to perform operations in the Alibaba Cloud ICP Filing system.
  • The Alibaba Cloud account used to apply for ICP filings does not require real-name verification. If you also need to use this account to purchase Alibaba Cloud services, you must complete real-name verification for this account.
  • The Alibaba Cloud account used to apply for and manage ICP filings and the Alibaba Cloud account used to purchase instances do not need to be the same. If your Alibaba Cloud resources and ICP filing information are managed by different persons, we recommend that you use separate Alibaba Cloud accounts to purchase and manage the resources and to manage the ICP filing information.
