    .ME isn't really a gTLD now is it...

    Excellent that more TLDs are now being automated, but could you perhaps explain why you're removing multi-year renewals for .IO ? 

    Also will you be supporting the new transfer method for ICB (.IO / .SH / .TM / .AC) domains as they switched from free transfers to being the more standard transfer model on 28th May?

    Hi Dan -

    Thank you for the catch on .ME not being a gTLD and I'm glad to hear you appreciate the work to automate a few more ccTLDs.

    For .IO, the reason we're doing single year only is to keep things simple. The registry allows 1, 2 and 5 year registrations, but that is quite unique amongst the various registries, so we think it's preferable to do only 1-year registrations to avoid having build in all the logic to support those odd term requirements (and so our resellers don't need to worry about that as well).

    As for the new transfer model for .IO, .SH, .TM and .AC domains, we will make the switch to support that in an upcoming release.

    Thanks for the comments!

    I hope you can improve domain contact modification's action, because sometimes the customer typed wrong email address, as example.

    From my check, I still need to fix it through Bulk Domain Changes, but I will prefer single domain name modification from WHMCS module more than.
