It seems godaddy was used to register and manage the DNS. Enter into the domain management page and see where it points. From those IPs you should be able to find the hosting company. The same can be done through tools like dig and whois:

> dig daniweb.com ANY

daniweb.com.        299 IN  A

> whois

Organization:   SoftLayer Technologies Inc. (SOFTL)

or through a service like:

for example, if you search daniweb.com you get a summary with the hosting company name:

Domain daniweb.com is listed in the top million list of Alexa ... This domain is hosted by SoftLayer Technologies Inc. (AS36351)...

Which is http://www.softlayer.com/

Yes, it's the same on tcpiputils: https://www.tcpiputils.com/browse/domain/stacychristine.com

And if you see the result of the WHOIS you can see who is the real registrant:

Registrant Name: CCA, Lt webPHOTOMaster, Betcha Private Registration

Which is:

It seems they developed the website, registered the godaddy DNS management for your client, then saved the website into Netsuite. If your client does not have the credentials to enter in Netsuite, then she can only ask to webPHOTOMaster support. I have some doubts you would be able to access that account. It will more probable that you could only point the DNS somewhere else, from godaddy panel, and start the website from zero. Good luck! :)

Besides: the hosting in use is powered by ASP.NET, not PHP:

> http head stacychristine.com                                                                   

HTTP/1.1 301 Moved Permanently
Cache-Control: private
Connection: keep-alive
Date: Tue, 30 May 2017 14:32:14 GMT
Location: http://www.stacychristine.com
Server: akka-http/10.0.0-100-netsuite-02
X-AspNet-Version: 4.0.30319
X-Powered-By: ASP.NET

So there is no way to access!

Not from godaddy. She cannot even log in into a backend panel to manage contents? Anyway the source code seems generated by ligthcms:

In case you don't get the access, it should be easy enough to rebuild it.
