I've been very happy with DNSimple, which has an incredibly complete and
very RESTful API. It supports registration, DNS, SSL certificates
(purchasing and signing), transfers, email forwarding, white-label/vanity
nameservers, portal users and domain-level access control, and a bunch of
other stuff: https://dnsimple.com/documentation/api. Scroll down to

Basically they treat the API as a first-class citizen. Their support has
been a joy to interact with.

It works with DitchDaddy to migrate from GoDaddy:
