Go daddy does not let me specify a "name server" under "Domain management" by using my name server's "IP" address. It requires you to specify the server name (e.g. When I do that with my server godaddy returns a message saying "server is not registered" I realize that my name server is providing name service for its own domain therefore I need a glue record and godaddy does not support it. What can I do?

you can add the information there and the IP. 

 after that your nameserver will be accepted in GODADDY's panel.
