I just made a few test sites using XAMPP, locally.
Its so much more convenient to test out plugins and themes on localhost.

I was wondering if I can develop an entire website on XAMPP and then just upload it to Cpanel/DirectAdmin.
I remember doing this for static HTML pages YEARS ago with FTP (back when microsoft frontpage was a thing).

Are there any tools to expedite this for WP?
Since it's not just the files but also the SQL database in this case that needs to be uploaded to the LAMP server.

Yes, there are plugins that can help you with that. There is one called "all in one wp migration" and if I'm not mistaken it's in the download section of BHW.

You can use any wp export/import plugin. I Use updraft plus migrator plugin. There is no difference in wp website on you pc or on a web hosting when it comes to export/import.

beside using plugins, you could upload the wp files, export your local db, create new db online and import it. then just change the credentials in wp-config.php and don't forget to chmod wp-content to 777.

"All In One WP Migration" plugin is the best for doing this. It exports both files and database.

Thanks, all, I'm going with Updraft, it seems to work with ClassicPress :)
