I don't know how it works in all cases but for me it is quite

a) My webhosting provider advertises that they support the Microsoft.NET
v2.0 framework. 

b) I write my active webpages (*.aspx) for any user interface code in Visual
Studio using ASP.NET v2. These generate C# skeleton code which I expand
using a mixture of C# and calls to GPCP procedures.

c) I upload my aspx files to any convenient user-specified subfolders on my
webserver using ftp.

d) I upload the dlls generated by GPCP to the "bin" folder on my website
using ftp. 

Note that I don't work down at the low level of CGI - AFAIK you don't need
to know about any of that when you are writing web applications using the
.NET framework. I just make calls to the framework in the same way as if I
was writing a desktop application and let it work out all the underlying
low-level web-specific details.
