Updating the DNS records can take up to an hour as GoDaddy mentions it.
So, you need to take this time-frame into account as well.
Also, make sure you've changed both
'WordPress Address (URL)' and 'Site Address (URL)'
settings under the WP Settings/General page.

Hope it helps,

I did both and now cant login into the admin panel. It asks for username and password. after inputting that t just stays there
How do you access your admin panel, thru your domain name or IP address?
i tried both. Because its redirecting to ip address. if i type website address in there it redirects to the ip
What's the domain name? Your browser probably cached the request.
what are your DNS settings in the Digital Ocean dns section for your droplet?
