Are you aware that a .app on MacOSX is actually a
directory, not a single file? So, as Kevin says,
you will need to turn it into a zip file or
something similar that you can upload to a web

Another popular way to distribute a MacOSX app
is using a disk image file (.dmg). Disk Utility
can be used to create those.
