If the domain name you have ICP filed through Alibaba Cloud is not in use, or your new domain name already has an ICP Filing number, you must log on to the Alibaba Cloud ICP Filing system to cancel ICP Filing. After the ICP Filing is cancelled, you can apply for another ICP Filing for the domain name.

If you are the ICP Filing subject,  you can Cancel an ICP Filing on Alibaba Cloud.

If  you are not the ICP Filing subject, or you cannot cancel it online for some reason, you visit the Communication administration systems to download the application form, and then Cancel an ICP Filing directly through MIIT.

For the ICP Filing information of the domain name, you can query it on the   Public Query  page of the MIIT system (www.miitbeian.gov.cn).

Types of ICP Filing cancellation

The two types of ICP Filing cancellation are Cancel Subject and Cancel Website.

  • Cancel Subject: Deletes the ICP number and all the websites filed under the ICP number.

  • Cancel Website: Deletes an ICP Filing of a certain website.

    Note
    If you want to cancel a domain name of a website which has multiple domain names, do not click Cancel Website, but click Change Website Information to delete domain names in the domain name list, and submit for review.

After the ICP Filing of the domain name has been cancelled, the website cannot be accessed.
