You should first investigate the different python web frameworks,
choose one and then use the deployment options supported by your
choice. These frameworks support several ways to deploy your apps,
such as those you mentioned.

If you want an easy way to get started for free, check the Google App
Engine.
It's the google infraestructure to host web apps (written in python or
Java), and it's free as long as you don't surpass the limited quotas
on bandwith and data used (which are quite generous). You don't need
to set up anything. All you need is a google account to get started.
