Transfer an ICP license to Alibaba Cloud

Last Updated: Jan 12, 2018

If your website domain name has been filed with another service provider and now your website is hosted by an Alibaba Cloud server, you must transfer your ICP Filing into Alibaba Cloud.


  • By transferring an existing ICP filing license, you only add Alibaba Cloud as your service provider. The other filed information is not changed.

  • It does not affect the ICP Filing data at your previous service provider. You can use the servers of both service providers.

  • Because the ICP Filing subject is not recorded in Alibaba Cloud, the subject information you enter is for provisional audit. After the communications administration approves the transfer application, the ICP Filing system syncs your original record filing subject information.

  • If the subject information has been filed with Alibaba Cloud and you want to transfer a website of this subject filed with another service provider to Alibaba Cloud, click Transfer Another ICP Filing to Alibaba Cloud on your ICP Filing system homepage.


  1. Log on to ICP Filing System (only available in Chinese).

  2. Enter the subject information and the domain name.

  3. Verify your ECS instance by the ICP Filing number. You can go to ICP No. Application to apply for the ICP Filing number for your ECS instance.

  4. Enter the information of the administrators of the ICP Filing subject and website.

  5. Upload the identification and document pictures for Alibaba Cloud review.

  6. After passing Alibaba Cloud review, the person in charge of the website must take photos as required and upload the photos for MIIT verification.

  7. Verify the mobile phone number of the subject and website administrators. Currently, mobile phone verification is only for Tianjin, Gansu, Tibet, Ningxia, Hainan, Xinjiang, and Qinghai.

    If you are applying an ICP Filing from Tianjin, Gansu, Tibet, Ningxia, Hainan, Xinjiang, and Qinghai, you receive a text message (in Chinese) from the MIIT in about five minutes after you get the Alibaba Cloud message and email. You must follow the message to verify the mobile phones in 48 hours. For more information about the mobile phone number verification, see Mobile phone verification for ICP Filing.

You get the result of MIIT verification by a text message and an email.
