I tried accessing the site from a different computer with a different ISP and I still can't access it. The URL I'm entering is definitely correct. The owner of the website just registered/bought it about two months ago with a two year subscription, so there shouldn't be any renewal issues.
Is there anything I can do to determine what's going on? I tried contacting the owner (I know him), but he hasn't responded. I don't feel comfortable sharing the URL for various reasons. I've tried doing a whois, ping, and DNS lookup and I'm not seeing anything that looks odd. But then, I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking for either.
I don't know why they would've taken down their website (if that's what they did). It's for the business they're starting. They just updated the website a few days ago. Weird.

Because you are not willing to share the URL, we cannot directly help because we can't actually see what is going on. In addition, it makes me think that the website in question may be one to break terms of service of a hosting provider (IE: no one would want to share a porn website link, so it might have been that). I'm not saying for sure that it is bad, but is it possible that they got their hosting revoked due to breaking terms of service?
Besides that, all it sounds like is either GoDaddy maintenance (doubtful, as they have backup systems to run the websites who's primary servers are down for maintenance), domain expiration, they took their website down, or their nameservers are incorrect (the nameservers in the whois query should either be pointed to godaddy or to a different domain (other host) depending on if they only bought their domain from godaddy, or if they also bought hosting from them).
