Nothing is a stupid question.  you can transfer databases by doing a
Machine# mysqldump -a -c -p insert_db_name_here > backup.sql
on your home machine, and then doing a
Machine_prod# mysqladmin -p create database_name
Machine_prod# mysql -p database_name < backup.sql
after you have transferred the backup file to your production box.
If you need anything else, let me know

This is probably a stupid question, but I'm pretty new at this!

Having built test MySQL databases for my website on my home machine, is it possible to transfer the data straight to a web hosting company's server or do I need to rebuild the databases again from scratch?

Thanks for any input,
