Being the registrant of the domain is the legal owner, that information just cannot be changed willy-nilly.   Imagine if anyone could get account information and go in and change that email without the legal owner knowing?  That's why an email to the address on the record has to be confirmed.


You are going to have to authenticate yourself -- that you are in fact the person who owns the domain in another way, typically by providing ID that correlates with the other information on the domain record.


Give GoDaddy support a call and someone can walk you through the steps and what is required to regain control of your domain record.


HTH! 😉
