I built a site in Webmatrix that works great on localhost. I tried to publish to my GoDaddy site using FTP. I've confirmed all files successfully transferred to GoDaddy, but the site issues an HTTP 500 error when I try to open the home page. I looked
at the remote files and it appears the site is still configured as localhost and not my URL. I think the problem may be that none of the references within the site are fixed during the move from localhost to mydomain.com
GoDaddy doesn't support Web Deploy so FTP is the only option.
What do I need to do to transform all links so the site actually works after publishing? I can't find anything about this anywhere.

You can try importing .publishsettings from your host provider's control panel when you click publish button.
