Limits

This topic describes the restrictions when you register a domain name and apply for an Internet Content Provider (ICP) filing for the domain name.

Domain name registration

  • A domain name that meets the following conditions cannot be registered:
  • The domain name is involved in litigation, arbitration, or punishment acts.
  • The domain name is reserved by the domain name registry.
  • The domain name contains sensitive words and is prohibited from being registered. When you customize the prefix of a domain name, follow the naming rules for domain names. For more information, see Naming rules for domain names.

ICP filing for domain names

The registrars at the Alibaba Cloud international site (alibabacloud.com) are registrars outside China. You cannot apply for an ICP filing for a domain name registered at the Alibaba Cloud international site (alibabacloud.com). If you want to deploy your services such as websites in mainland China, you must register your domain name and complete the ICP filing for your website at the Alibaba Cloud China site. Otherwise, your website may be inaccessible in mainland China.

Domain name fees

The prices for the registration, renewal, transfer, and redemption of domain names vary depending on the suffixes. The prices may also be adjusted according to the market. For more information, see Check all our TLDs.

Naming rules for Chinese domain names

A Chinese domain name must comply with the following rules

  • The Chinese domain name must contain at least one Chinese character and can contain letters (A to Z, case-insensitive), digits (0 to 9), and hyphens (-).
  • The domain name must be registered in simplified or traditional Chinese. For most domain name registrars, a domain name in simplified Chinese is equivalent to its traditional Chinese form. However, if a domain name is registered in simplified Chinese, the equivalent domain name in traditional Chinese can no longer be registered. The reverse operation also applies.
  • The domain name cannot start or end with a hyphen (-), plus sign (+), at sign (@), ampersand (&), or space.
  • The domain name cannot contain only letters or digits.

  • Some domain names do not support Chinese characters, such as .com.cn, .net.cn, and .org.cn domain names.

  • The domain name can contain letters (A to Z, case-insensitive), digits (0 to 9), and hyphens (-). It cannot contain spaces or special characters, such as exclamation points (!), dollar signs ($), ampersands (&), and question marks (?).
  • The domain name cannot contain consecutive hyphens (–) or only one hyphen (-). A hyphen cannot be placed at the beginning or end of a domain name.
  • The domain name cannot exceed 63 characters in length.
