I think you need to set A RECORD if you have your own web server. Set A RECORD with your Web server's IP address to their own nameservers.

Your name registrar's name server has your domain name and ip mapping info in what is called the A-Record. You need to register your web server's ip into your registrar's dns servers. Godaddy.com has a very flexible admin tool for setting every record yourself (if you know what you're doing).
