I don't wish to rewrite them again and just would like to move them from local host to hosting!
there's a simple step:
1. drag and drop your web folder from local host to the directory public html in your web host
2. export your localhost database (sql) from your local phpmyadmin
3. import your database that you export from localhost to your webhost through cpanel --> mysql database
4. edit your configuration file (usually named config.php / wp-config if you use wordpress) change username, password or host with your webhost configuration (before was your localhost configuration)
if you found difficulty you can browse youtube video tutorial, I think plenty of source there.
