In AWS you have Route53 that manages your domain.
RecordSets allow you to apply changes to your DNS table.

You can use CloudFormation to write changes to your DNS table.
You can use CloudFormation ChangeSets where it requires a manual review step.

Route53 has a built-in tool to test if you have configured things correctly, and via the AWS SDK you can write a script that could rollback your changes.

Also, you might be used to using GUIs but there are many providers where you can supply DNS records as one big text file. This is where you can overlay lots of automation.
