If your host runs Zope, then use import/export, Data.fs copy, ZSyncer to 
move data from your development instance to your host's instance. You 
can also consider doing the development on the host's instance to 
eliminate that step.

If your host doesn't use Zope, and you're using Zope to develop the 
site, you can download the rendered pages somehow to make a static image 
(this is usually very platform dependant) and then upload that to your 
host's static webserver the usual way. But if you're creating a static 
site, Zope may not be the best way to do that.
