Set your domain's name servers to

On the digital ocean control panel, under DNS, add domain.

There's a tutorial that shows you how to set up DNS records using DigitalOcean's control panel:

If you want to use GoDaddy's tools, the most basic set up is to set an "A" record and a "CNAME":

A - @ - your.ip.address
CNAME - www - @

This will point "" to you IP address and also send "" to ""

This article walks you through setting up the DNS for your site. The tutorial includes steps to set up an A records, point your nameservers, and provides some information about MX records.
First of all You need to setup DNS records as mentioned in the previous answer.
If You are new to DO, and it's seems to complicated for You,
You have ability to point Your domain name to the DO IP address. ie. create A / CNAME records matching Your domain name / IP address in the GoDaddy DNS pannel.

Next thing You have to do is to configure apache daemon (I assume that You are talking about web applications), so the server can understand when it receives requests from Your doamin name, and it must know where to point that request to. (path where you web application is stored) /etc/hhtpd/conf/httpd.conf
