You should use the 'mysqldump' program (or phpMyAdmin) on the original server.  It will create '*.sql' files that you can upload to your hosting using phpmyadmin.  That's the way I do it every week.

Note that those files are only for 'MyIsam' databases.  To export InnoDB databases, you Must use the 'mysqldump' program (or phpMyAdmin).

just to add to Dave's comment. mysqldump will output the create database/tables and the insert directives for the data that will then need to be run on the destination.

Are you able to access the hosting provider mysql remotely?
mysqldump -u user -p --database=yourdB > yourdb.sql
