    you'll have to ask godaddy whether or not you have cPanel. They have a hybrid system. Some of their sites do, some do not.
    IF you have cpanel, you can login to godaddy, make a backup and move it to another cpanel server.
    If not, it can be done, but it'll take time

    Contact the Godaddy Support team and ask them to create a tar.gz file if your site has cpanel or you can do it yourself by logging in cpanel account and creating full backup from backup option.

    if its not cpanel then godaddy will provide you a normal backup file which easily can be used with new host to restore the data.
