You need to begin with step 2 through this DigitalOcean tutorial page:

This article explains how to manage your DNS records using the DigitalOcean Control Panel and can help you decide if DigitalOcean's DNS management tools are right for your situation.

Easy way to do it is just add the A record to your dns at godaddy pointing your your DO droplet ip.

See: http://support.godaddy.com/help/article/680/managing-dns-for-your-domain-names

Its been some time since I used Godaddy and never liked the screwed up way they do the control panel.
