Updating my domain (on GoDaddy) to NOT point to my site

I guess I have two options, point it to a broken IP address, at which point GoDaddy will display a "URL not found" type of error.

Another is to point at their default "Coming Soon" website.

I think I prefer the broken URL option.

How do I make my domain to point to nothing?

Thanks

Deleting would be best option as mentioned. Only other option that makes sense is pointing to a known place that you have control over. But if you go through all of that you might as well use their coming soon page.
