Hi Andreas,

And you might be right that this is the proper way.

We support altering the period via our self-service platform and would love to support the same feature via EPP.

The thing that confuses me is this:

But it seems that it is only possible to change: roles, nameservers, DNSSEC (via extension) and registrant. So the period is all of a sudden regarded as a secondrate citizen, even though it influences the future invoicing cycle.

So based on that you would have to require a RENEW command to change it.

I will try to analyse it more deeply perhaps it is just a case of “same same, but different”, since it seems the effect will actually be the same.
