Double ICP Needed

Thursday, August 12th, 2010

Just a quick update on ICP since that is what I get a lot of hits for – that and ESX disk woes.

Previously you would have to decide between a “normal” ICP as needed for all business online properties.  Or a “commercial” ICP for doing trades/shopping cart/ecommerce.

Well if you had the latter – get ready to go an apply for the former AS WELL and IN ADDITION to the latter.  Otherwise the nice men at 5PM on a Friday on the phone will be demanding that your site is taken down.  Even though you have a commercial ICP and put up the millions in RMB in registered capital required for it.
