Question about Domain Name Transfer

I purchased a domain name from Whois. I then decided to have it hosted by GoDaddy.com. There was a glitch because it is less than 60 days since I purchased the domain, and GoDaddy wants me to call Whois and ask for the nameserver(s) to have them point to them, in order that I might start building the website with GoDaddy's website building tools.

Can anyone explain what all this means to me? Who has to point to whom?  Thanks in advance.

This means that Whois (the people who registered your domain) need to set the "Authoritative Name Servers" for your domain, to the GoDaddy nameservers.

This is an entry in the DNS settings for the domain, and allows GoDaddy to correctly route/serve your web site.

It's a simple process, and will take between 24-48 hours to replicate around the world once Whois have made the change.  This is normal.
