Cannot connect DigitalOcean droplet, GoDaddy asks for different IP Address for each nameserver

Yesterday, I bought a .NL Domain name from GoDaddy. I have already setup a DigitalOcean droplet.

By using following Terminal command

 

$ host ns1.digitalocean.com
ns1.digitalocean.com has address 173.245.58.51
ns1.digitalocean.com has IPv6 address 2400:cb00:2049:1::adf5:3a33

I found out the IP addresses for each of the domain nameservers of Digital ocean so that I can successfully save the nameservers on GoDaddy for the domain name.

But when I try to save the nameservers it gives me following error:

 

The data provided cannot be used, please correct it and resubmit your request.

 

So I'm stuck there and can't proceed further. I tried to contact GoDaddy online help but they don't seem to be available from the morning today 😞

Please help!

If your new nameservers are correct, just keep hitting Save until it works.  It took me 5-7 tries for each domain name but it worked for me eventually!  Unbelievable.
