[Suggestion] Nameservers

Allow four (preferably configurable for more) nameservers to be specified/displayed in the GUI.
RFC recommends a minimum of two and up to six, be used.

My standard configuration is three (of my own) nameservers. On other servers, I use four and occasionally six.

Of course. My own nameservers are on geographically diverse VPS.
Where 4 or 6 nameservers are used, they are 3rd party ones, with Anycast capability, for example.

According to RFC2182 section 5 you must have at least 3 nameservers, and no more than 7

Minimum number of name servers

There must be at least two NS records listed in a delegation, and the hosts must not resolve to the same IP address.

by the way you can add extra name servers manually

in future maybe we can add more name server add option.
