First, please don't shout. ALL-CAPS is considered shouting on the Web, and pretty rude. Please edit your text to remove it. I also would advise to read at least a bit about how things work before doing development.

And you could easily find all you need on the Web. You really should so some homework of this sort before asking such questions.

What you need to run is called HTTP server, and it should be ASP.NET-enabled. You can run it on the same computer as the Web browser used for the show or somewhere on the net.

Did you notices that with Visual Studio, you were running a special "development" HTTP server. If you don't clearly understand what the server was doing (which I suspect from the question), I would say that your statement "I created a Web page… made up of ASP.NET and C#" is a certain exaggeration. :-) I apologize if this is not the case.

I know only two candidates for such a server (not counting the development server). One is IIS, another is Apache with Mono and a module used to implement ASP.NET functionality called "mod_mono". Please see:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Information_Services[^],
http://www.iis.net/[^];

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mono_%28software%29[^],
http://www.mono-project.com/Main_Page[^];

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mod_mono[^],
http://www.mono-project.com/Mod_mono[^].

IIS is only for Windows, Apache-based solution can work on different platforms, including Windows and Linux.

Practically, you can order a Web hosting service (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_hosting_service[^]) and deploy your Web site there, and the service will serve up your site for you. You can have it free of charge, at least for some trial period.

I already asked you to stop shouting with your ALL-CAPS. I do understand that you don't mean to be rude, but it is usually perceived this way... why would continue doing it?

With hosting, you should be careful, but you can find an offer where you do not pay anything at all. There are sites which support free service, because this is a good way of getting new paying customers, for more advanced features of the service. "Try before you buy". Try to find such schema, it is becoming increasingly easy. And avoid paying in advance having the promise to get your money back -- some reported it was difficult. They set up your site in a matter of minutes, and you start paying only when you order upgraded plan. Before that, they simply have no chance to charge you, because they don't required any credit card requisites or something. Just find a situation where you just start using it. This is pretty easy to find these days.
