What do I do after getting a message from MIIT?

Last Updated: Jan 11, 2018

An ICP Filing successful message

An ICP Filing successful message sent from the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) indicates that your ICP Filing information has been approved by the authority. It takes some time for the Alibaba Cloud ICP Filing system to synchronize the MIIT review result. During this period, you can resolve your domain name to your Alibaba Cloud ECS instance (for information about the domain name resolution method, see Domain name resolution). After the MIIT review result is synced to Alibaba Cloud, your domain name directing to the Alibaba Cloud ECS instance is accessible.

An ICP number cancelled message

If you receive a text message that says your ICP number has been cancelled, go to the Public Query page of the MIIT ICP Filing system (www.miitbeian.gov.cn) to double-check the result. If the ICP number for your domain name has been cancelled, we recommend that you apply for a new ICP number as soon as possible to make your website accessible.

An invalid ICP Filing message

Invalid ICP Filing means the ICP Filing of a website domain name resolved to an IP address that belongs to a non-access service provider, or the domain name is not valid. The ICP Filing is still recorded in MIIT system, but the ICP number may soon be cancelled by the local communications administration. We recommend that you do as follows:

  • If you are using an Alibaba Cloud ECS instance, submit an ICP Filing transfer application as soon as possible. After the ICP Filing is successfully transferred to Alibaba Cloud, direct the domain name IP address to your Alibaba Cloud ECS instance.

  • If you no longer use an Alibaba Cloud ECS instance, contact your service provider to transfer the ICP Filing.
Thank you! We've received your feedback.
