Couldn't change Nameservers

wom_prakash_0-1587806721139.png

I am trying to add Cloudflare Nameserver but it asks for IP address for both Namservers and both are assumed to be unique.
Why should I add IP address if Iam using a third party DNS management.

1) You can ping / lookup the IP for the CloudFlare servers

2) Certain Domain types require the IP address to be entered as well and be unique - this isn't a requirement by GoDaddy but rather the registration agency. 

 

I've seen various requirements - for example some won't let you use custom servers ns#.yourdomain.com - others say the IP address have to be unique and on different subnets
