    Thats it. Theres no site. Just the domain with hundreds of name servers. Then I found a few tables and graphs on how many domains go through it or something when googling it. But I found no real information on what it is.

    It's just what you said it is, it's their name server. They could call it godaddy.com so all your customers know you're a reseller and thus will cut you out and go straight to the source.

    That's a pretty common practice. Before I got a reseller account with my own name servers, most hosting co's I used had some other domain for their name servers. In any case, nothing funny or strange about this
