ICP Filing (aka Domain Name Filing, Website Filing)

According to the requirements of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology of the People’s Republic of China, any domain name resolved to a domestic Chinese server must complete ICP Filing.

ICP Getting Started

ICP Filing refers to reporting the matter to the competent authority and filing it for future reference. Filing is roughly divided into two types: one is operating filing, and the other is non-operating filing. This refers to the latter. All websites that resolve domain names to servers/cloud servers in Mainland China must submit website owner/sponsor information to the Administration and apply for a ICP (ICP License) before they can use the domain name to access the website normally without record. The website will be inspected by its access provider or relevant departments and closed immediately. According to relevant regulations, rectification and fines may also be imposed.
