The private key would be on the machine where you created your CSR to submit to GoDaddy.

The .key files should be on your server, that is how the csr is generated.

You pasted a reply to another SSL question you have open at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Server_Software/Web_Servers/Apache/Q_27361525.html?cid=1572#a36926546

By that information, your key is mydomain.com

The file would be located in the same directory you ran the openssl command in.
