1) Create a new database on your Webhost (usually through some sort of control panel)
2) Dump your local database contents to a file (using PhpMyAdmin, the Backup function of the MySQL Administrator tool or command line)
3) Import the database dump into the database on your webserver
4) Copy all files from your PC to your webserver
5) Modify _config.php and .htaccess to reflect your webserver settings (update DB credentials and make sure RewriteBase in the .htaccess is correct)

I regularly copy local sites to webservers and it always worked like a charm. Oh and another thing:
6) On your production server, remove the error-404.html file from the assets folder and run dev/build?flush=all. This should recreate the cached files and the 404 error page (which may contain invalid links if you use the one from the local installation)

Thank you for your review, it was very helpful! I use for my hosting and couldn't be happier.
