If you mean how to get your comic into a form you can use with this website: You will need a scanner, or a very good digital camera with appropriate lighting. Scanners are pretty cheap these days, the Canon LiDE series is pretty good for scanning pencil and ink stuff and there are models under $40.
In addition to a scanner or some other way to digitize your page, you'll need an image editor to scale your image to an appropriate size for the web, so it's not too big. There are free options for this, such as GIMP and probably others that I'm not aware of.

A scanner is a separate piece of hardware that you put your artwork on/in. It's not likely that your computer has one built-in. Some printers are printer/scanner combos though, maybe you have one of those?
