Best registrar for cheap dns control

MrVault asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-25
I've been a Godaddy user for years for mainly a couple reasons: easy to use DNS control of all different record types, account executive features (a lot of my clients have this and they retain control but grant me access to maintain their records), and affordability (due to coupons only).

for many reasons I am leaving them, but would like to maintain at least the first two reasons if at the same price or better than Godaddy. Can anyone make recommendations? I need to be able set my own TTL values, update the TXT record, etc and know it won't take 48 hours for people to see the changes. For whatever reason godaddy's changes always seemed to propagate quickly.

I should add that I use them as a registrar only. I have my hosted services with other places so that I can move between them easily without them retaining too much control.
