What is ICP registration?
Before launching a website or platform in China, all organizations must first apply for an Internet Content Provider (ICP) registration. ICP registration is administered by the Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT). All websites that are hosted in Mainland China – whether personal or for an organization or business – must obtain ICP registration before their site goes live. The rule is enforced at the hosting level. Further, all websites are required to display their ICP registration in the footer of their website.
