Yes. Are you simply looking to use your own nameserver names or do you want to run your own nameservers on a droplet? You can accomplish the branded nameserver option without having to administer your own nameservers by following this guide.

If you do need to run your own nameservers and are not using a control panel like cPanel on your droplets to manage this, this tutorial will guide you in the process.
