  • Your domain name must be registered with and administered by a domain name registrar authorized by the MIIT. For the authorized domain name registrars, see MIIT's website.
  • Your domain name must be within the validity period. You can visit Alibaba Cloud WHOIS System for domain name information queries.

  • The information of the ICP Filing subject must be consistent with the registrant (domain name holder) information.
