Does server change affect ICP filing?

Yes. It largely depends on if the new IP is from the same service provider.
When changing the IP address for ICP filing, please note:

  1. If your IP is changing from Alibaba Cloud to us, please transfer your ICP filing to us, and vice versa.
  2. If you have a Tencent Cloud IP and wish to change to another Tencent Cloud IP, operational ICP license may be required.
    A. If operational ICP license is required, you need to apply for ICP filing information change and fill in the new IP address for ICP filing to make sure that the IP in the operational ICP license is the same as the IP registered with the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT);
    B. If operational ICP license is not required, you do not need to apply for ICP filing information change, as ICP filing change is not mandatory in case of IP change within the same access provider. Instead, you can submit the new IP when changing other ICP filing information.
