Check for a google(DNS EPP) for a lot of info on a standardized
protocols, though typically a registrar will provide a custom interface.

Many of the more established providers do this and it is more or less a
requirement for DNSSEC to work. google(DNSSEC glue) and you get a list
of providers who do DNSSEC and who likely also have an automated
interface for this. As a note GPG + Joker seem to be the popular ones
for this.
