By default, the authoritative nameservers for your domain will be those belonging to your registrar (in this case, GoDaddy, the single worst and most evil registrar around; change providers ASAP). You need to either change the autoritative servers in their settings to point to Digital Ocean’s nameservers (if you want to manage DNS on Digital Ocean) or configure DNS on godaddy’s site. For support with godaddy, you’ll have to go to them (though I wouldn’t hold my breath).
