Hi!
You will need a server with at least a web container, for instance Tomcat. Better yet would be an application server with a web service stack, for instance GlassFish.
In the first case you will need to include a web service stack (if you use one) beside your web service.
Best wishes!

You just deploy it on a computer that is accessible from "the internet" and that runs, for instance, a GlassFish application server.

Exactly!
I am afraid I have little experience in renting Java web hosting since the projects I have been involved in that needs such arrangements usually put up server(s) of their own.
I tried a quick search on the internet for "java web hosting" and there seems to be quite a few alternatives and very different prices.
Best wishes!
