inside the godaddy.com administration panel you have an option to change the DNS settings (name servers) for the domain name..  change the name servers to point to your domain name through dyndns.org


the other option is to go into the administration panel for the domain name in godaddy, and set up domain forwarding rules to point at dyndns.org

Here's a copy/paste from godaddy on domain forwarding:





Forwarding a domain name enables you to direct incoming traffic from your parked domain to an already existing Web site. Thus, when someone attempts to access your domain, he or she is automatically redirected. A parked domain is a domain name with domain name servers (DNS) set to parked.

Forwarding with Masking prevents visitors from knowing that they have been redirected by securing that your domain name remains in the visitor's browser's address bar when he/she is being redirected, thus concealing the actual destination address. The Forwarding with Masking option further enables users to add a title, plus description and keywords Meta tag data to the masked site. Title and Meta tag information is important to a Web site’s search engine ranking, but does not influence how a Web site is being displayed.

To forward your domain(s), you must log in to your account.

Step 1:
Select Manage Domains from the Domain Names menu.

Or, click Manage Domains from under the Manage Your Account heading further down the page.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Step 2:
Select the domain you wish to forward by checking the box next to it and click Forward Domains.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 3:
Enter the name of the domain that you want to forward to in the text box on the right side of the screen under the Forward Domains heading.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Step 4:
Click the Save Changes button at the bottom.

If you also want to have the domain masked, check the Mask Domain box. With masking you will be able to enter a title, description and keyword Meta tags in the fields provided.
