You need a server that hosts a servlet container (such as GlassFish, Jetty or Tomcat), or lets you install one. The easiest way is probably to find web hosting that lets you deploy wars to some pre-installed servlet container, but if you want more flexibility, you can have a look at a Virtual Private Server.

I'll move this to the JSP forums.

See the ServletsFaq for a list of some known web hosting services.

For local development and testing you can just install Tomcat or Glassfish. (I find the former much easier to deal with.)
