Transfer an ICP license to Alibaba Cloud

Last Updated: Apr 04, 2018

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


  • By transferring an existing ICP Filing license, you only add Alibaba Cloud as your service provider. The other filed information remains unchanged.

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

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


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

  2. Enter the subject information and the domain name correctly.

  3. Verify your ECS instance by the ICP Filing service code. You can go to the ICP No. Application page to apply for the ICP Filing service code 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 review.

  6. After clearing Alibaba Cloud review, the website administrator must take photos as required and upload the photos for MIIT verification.

    Note for Shanghai users: Shanghai Communications Administration requires that ICP Filing applicants in Shanghai must use Shanghai Communications Administration app (only available in Chinese) to verify the website administrator. For more information, see Using Shanghai Communications Administration app.

  7. Verify the mobile phone number of the subject and website administrators. Currently, mobile phone verification is active 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 receiving a text message and an email from Alibaba Cloud. You must verify your mobile phone number through the text message in 48 hours. For more information, see Mobile phone verification for ICP Filing.

You get the ICP Filing result through a text message and an email.
