I've had very good experiences with ZoneEdit (http:// 
www.zoneedit.com/).  They give you up to 5 domains at no charge with  
a reasonable array of services, their web interface is simple and  
straightforward, and I haven't been unable to do something DNS- 
related that I wanted to do.  Their DDNS update mechanism can be  
implemented with a one-line invocation of wget, suitable for running  
via cron; no special client is necessary.

I would also recommend looking into Rollernet (http://rollernet.us/)  
for secondary DNS and secondary MX service.  They also provide a  
reasonable range of service at no charge (though, as with ZoneEdit,  
you need to pay for some of the advanced functionality).  It's a  
great relief to know that if I have to take my mail server down for  
maintenance I won't miss any mail.

Finally, if you want to run your own server, I recommend the Qmail  
Toaster (http://www.qmailtoaster.com/).  It's a turnkey solution that  
runs perfectly on CentOS and provides far more capabilities than the  
stock packages do.
