You will need to point your domain to your ip address. If you have a permanent ip address you can do this with your GoDaddy domain control panel so that the nameserver for your domain points to your ip address.
if you do not have a fixed ip address there is a free service at http://www.zonedit.com to change the ip address when it is changed by your isp.
You should be aware however that xampp is not meant to be used as a production server and there are severe security implications in using xampp in this way. In particular secure webdav.

If this does not work check your port forwarding and that you are allowing apache through any firewalls. I assume that your isp does no block port 80 - some do.
