You need to configure multiple A records for your domain in DNS.  But, before you do that of course you will want to make sure you link the external IP's to your server.  There are too many configuration possibilities so I will not make assumptions on all the steps needed for your particular circumstance.

Go Daddy said they do not have the ability to use multiple A records, do you know who or how i would register the multiple IPs with? Maybe another vendor or service?

No-IP.com is a dynamic DNS service and may be a solution for you. Your solution is in DNS hosting or forwarding of some sort.  Nick

All of the dedicated DNS providers should permit that. Those include:


There are more and plenty of low cost options. If you opt to use one of them it's worth looking around a little more.
