To host a website on a server in Mainland China, individual and enterprise applicants must apply for an ICP License (‘Bei’an’ in Chinese) from MIIT. Obtaining an ICP filing number means your website is verified and allowed to be accessed in Mainland China. Corporate websites with the purpose of generating income or providing a platform for others to generate income must apply for an ICP filing.
