ChinaTechNews: MII Plans To Block Websites And Server IP Addresses


China’s Ministry of Information Industry () has warned that websites who do not comply with recent registration guidelines will have their Internet Protocol (IP) addresses blocked.

MII says about 30% of websites in China still have not registered for an Internet Content Provider (ICP) identification number. As a result, not only will these websites face closure, but they will also bring risks to others who share the same IP address with them.

About 80% of China’s 660,000 domestic websites are built through renting a virtual host computer which is based on sharing the same IP address and servers. Once a particular Chinese user breaks the rules, many others who share the same IP address and server will be affected.
