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 ""

Let us know if you have any problems!
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

Do you really have a third NS server ?

I am facing below error!!!!

Missing nameservers reported by parent FAIL: The following nameservers are listed at your nameservers as nameservers for your domain, but are not listed at the parent nameservers (see RFC2181 5.4.1). You need to make sure that these nameservers are working.If they are not working ok, you may have problems!
