I am assuming this is on Managed WordPress and you currently have a myftpupload.com domain.

 

When you are ready to go live you will visit the hosting dashboard (http://myh.godaddy.com) and go to the domain settings for your website.

 

On the domain settings you can "add" a domain and select the domain which is in your account or add an external domain if it registered somewhere else.

 

Assuming it is registered in YOUR account at GoDaddy, once you select the domain and click add, the GoDaddy system will update the DNS settings and link it with the site.
