Hi Patrick D,
Migration (deployment) of a Sitefinity website from development to production server is the same as for each website.
If you have a VPS or dedicated server you can run the installer , because you will have needed permissions. Otherwise you need to proceed with FTP. Backup of the database is required. After you backup your database you can restore it on the production.
Let us know if there is anything else that we can do for you.
