To put a Director file on the web you publish to Shockwave (the browser
plugin for running Director files).
Read the help around publish options, and check the Shockwave and HTML
tabs of the File -> Publish Settings dialog.
I have a tutorial on creating Shockwave at:
Director will create a HTML page that calls the Shockwave movie. Typically, a
website that has shockwave would just have the shockwave element as one part of the
page and may have text, graphics or other things in the page as well. You can use a
program like Dreamweaver to edit and link HTML pages.
In terms of haveing your site hosted and then uploading, that's not too difficult.
There are lots of places that will host for a relatively low price and they will
give you info on how to upload your pages. there are also free sites that allow you
to ahve your own website. Howevr, these typically involve having lots of
advertisements surrounding your pages.

It seems you got an answer, to complement the info, go to publish settings and check/unckeck the publish formats (check html if you choose shockwave, this will generate the HTML code to open your .dcr file by double-clicking the HTML file)
As an advice, there are not stupid questions, just stupid answers (i am not talking about the answers of this thread)
Good luck in your start.
