I would like to setup MongoDB with GoDaddy Shared Hosting (Linux). I have already enable SSH access. I can upload, extract, and run MongoDB succesfully outside of the doc root.

But, how do I ensure that MongoDB is always running and ready to accept transactions? How can I access it?

It's not possible sorry, you might of been mislead by the ability to SSH into your hosting provider.

Your best bet is to use a cheap dedicated server from someone like AWS or Rackspace Cloud, or use a MongoDB hosting service
