And do I add my IP?
Also, if I am correct above could I list it like...
Name Server 1: xx.xxx.xx.xx
Name Server 2: http://webpages.somewhere.net/myspace/
so that #2 points to a page where the viewer would be directed if my computer is turned of and I could have a nice message saying when it'll be online?
Thank you in advance for any help!

and this still applies even when you are hosting with GoDaddy.Your nameservers ns1, ns2 etc. must point to the DNS servers that hold your domain name Zone file.
