How difficult is it to move a website from a local server to having it hosted at lets say GoDaddy?

It depends (come on, you had to see that coming :) ) on the site. Is it all static content (HTML, javascript, graphics, etc.) or is there dynamic content (php, ColdFusion, etc.)? Is there anything else complex about the site (such as relying on components that would need to be installed)? It sounds like there's a database -- is it SQL Server? Then you'll need a host that provides SQL Server (most of them do -- but those accounts might be a bit more expensive).

Another issue I am told is nobody has to deal with a password on SQL.

I'm not sure I understand the question here. Are you saying you have a SQL (SQL Server?) database but it doesn't have a password on it?
