I've been slowly moving my personal stuff to hidden primary and using
Someone Else(TM) as the public face of my DNS. I've happily been using
Dyn's managed DNS service --- amusingly, I switched stuff over the very
week their highly-publicised DDoS attack happened. Can't say anything
about DNSSEC, but they've got the rest, they can do zone transfers from
my hidden master, and I think the base level is something like $7 a
month (I pay slightly more based on the number of records I have).

My recent project is evaluating other providers to add redundancy, but
that's in the very beginning stages.
