I have a feeling that GoDaddy do not support Web Deploy so you should use FTP. You should check with GoDaddy.

Use FTP , upload your site to server (keep in mind you will have to upload bin folder and all the dlls too), go to Godaddy's control panel make sure you use asp.net 4.0 and set permission to App_Data folder (must be read/write) and it will work

I have 4 sites that are running on Go Daddy servers, 2 of which I am developing with WebMatix.
I populate everything from MSSql, it posts to Facebook, and loads everything quite fast.
This one is HTML5, Expression 4, jPlayer with a playlist, and on Go Daddy
I upload my files and folders using WebMatrix and/or Expression 4 to Go Daddy srvers with really no issues. 3rd party ftp clients I've had issues. If it will run on your local iis it will run on Go Daddy.

U need to use FTP and transfer your site files to your GoDaddy server.
In order to create a database for my webmatrix site on hostgator...I had taken a backup of my webmatrix site database and then next i created a database on my hostgator server and restored the database backup file on that database. Similarly you can do on
your GoDaddy server.
For connecting the database with your webmatrix site you need to alter your web.config..check that out here

Inorder to take the Backup of your Webmatrix Database and Install it on your GoDaddy Server
1. Migrate your database from SQL Server CE to SQL Server Express, That can done by the Migrate Button in Webmatrix.
2. Login to your SQL Server Express using SSMS and then take a backup of that database.(Remember both the database backup file and the database on your GoDaddy server should be of SQL Server 2008 )
3. Now create a database on your server and then restore that database file on that database.

Migrate your database from SQL Server CE to SQL Server Express
WHY ??? He can simply copy entire site with sql ce database to the server - there is no need to migrate it from sql ce to full sql

Yes your absolutely correct.
But what if we wants our site to connect to GoDaddy's SQL Server and not SQL Server CE database file in our App_Data folder.

Here is tutorial how to publish site using FTP (not Godaddy but rules are the same, you will find all needed info in GoDaddy's control panel):
and hee is one from MS (scroll down for FTP)
@Abhishek Luv - it looks like the user has problem with publishing the site, so don't think it is good idea to make it even harder by adding extra steps (steps that are not needed in order for the site to work)
