You need to find a gateway or such kind of service first. The service provider will probably offer you the method or API to integrate your web site to their service. This topic has also been discussed in these forums for several times before. You can search
for those threads and see if they are suitable for you.

Do you need to receive SMS? If you need to receive SMS, you will need to host your own GSM device or modem so that people can send you SMS. If not, you can just use internet SMS gateways like clickatell to do the work, and post to them by HTTP, XML or
email. The cost is about 6-8 cents per SMS. There are cheaper services, but not always reliable. If you need to host your own GSM device, you can use software like http://www.kannel.org (GPL Open Source) or http://www.visualgsm.com.
