    Hi Mr.rooteg,

    No you cannot. A name server must have one unique IP address. If you have four unique IP's create four name servers.

    Hello,

    You can setup name servers across multiple servers, however the use of multiple IP addresses on a single name server at the same time isn't supported. Here's a thread discussing dynamic DNS if that's what you are looking to configure:

    Can cPanel Update Dynamic IP Information To DNS Records?

    Thank you.
