It's pretty much the same as VS2005 you can download the web deployment project from
this deploys a compiled version of the site.
Hope this helps [:D]

To add to what Steve says, there shouldn't be any special issues deploying a Dynamic Data Web Application Project compared to a regular ASP.NET Web Application Project.

Make sure your provider has .Net 3.5 SP1 installed on the server and make sure that the data base can be accesed from the internet these are the only issues I've heard people having.
P.S. have a look at this article regarding deployment of ASP.Net apps:
Web Platform Installer: Make it easy to setup for web development: Scott Hanselman has a nice post that shows off the new
"Microsoft Web Platform Installer" we are building that provides an easy way to quickly install every Microsoft web component out there - and quickly get a machine ready for web development.

Web sites are far simpler to deploy than web applications (for web sites, simply xcopy, ftp, etc the files to the target server). Either way you can do a dry run by deploying to a Vista SP1 or Win08 machine and testing the application as you would on the
actual deployment target. Visa SP1 has the same IIS7 as Win08, so you can flesh out problems hidden by Cassini (ASP.Net development server).
As Steve mentioned, make sure your hosting company has .Net 3.5 SP1. Generally your host-er will also host your DB, so you will adjust you connection strings accordingly.
