The home, or root, directory is the first directory that opens when you connect to your domain name with FTP. Any folders in this directory are considered a sub-folder of the root directory. For example, in the domain name coolexample.com, a sub-folder would be 'example1' in the URL 'coolexample.com/example1'.

The root directory is the directory where you must place the PHP, or HTML files to make them visible as content of the web site.

Create a modules folder and a themes folder these should be added to the sites/all directory where godaddy put your drupal site on the server you then add your modules and themes to these folders

Download filezilla @ http://filezilla-project.org/
# FTP Address or Hostname: Your Domain Name
# FTP Username & Password: You selected both of these during account creation
