Someone has hacked DNS or your site specifically. If a customer gets to your site correctly, tell them to hit refresh and see if it goes to the other site.

If you're running ads, it is a common issue.

Without knowing what's running on your site (ex: Wordpress, Drupal, plain ol' HTML) it's hard to say with certainty beyond someone has either "hacked" your site or "hacked" DNS data for your site. The former is way more likely than the latter.

You can try running your URL through a site like Browser Shots to get an idea of where your traffic might be getting redirected to, then you can use that browsershot to contact Godaddy for support or dig through your site's code looking for a redirect (if there's an obvious one to a site you see in browsershots).
