If your website is hosted in an Alibaba Cloud instance located in Mainland China and uses Alibaba Cloud Web Application Firewall (WAF) to ensure the security of web applications, you must apply for an ICP filing for the website. This topic describes the ICP filing requirements for using Alibaba Cloud WAF.



In this scenario:
  • Do I need to apply for an ICP filing for the domain name?

    The website is hosted in an Alibaba Cloud instance located in Mainland China. Therefore, you must apply for an ICP filing for the domain name www.example.com. When configuring security protection in Alibaba Cloud WAF, you need to select this domain name with an ICP filing.

  • Do I need to add Alibaba Cloud to the ICP filing information as a service provider?

    The ICP filing information of the domain name must exist in the Alibaba Cloud ICP Filing system. We recommend that you apply for the ICP filing in the Alibaba Cloud ICP Filing system (available in Chinese only). For more information, see Quick Start.
