I don't know how the "homepage" expects your key to be uploaded. Here on Launchpad you have a web interface. When using OpenSSH you have to create a file ~/.ssh/autorized_keys and put the keys in there, one per line.
You will find your key at ~/.ssh/id_dsa.pub or id_rsa.pub .If there is none, you have generate one with
ssh-keygen

Depends on
a) what you're trying to archive exactly
b) how the homepage is operated

I do not know to which "our homepage" you are referring to, but if you want to upload a SSH key to launchpad.net, please see the help pages

https://help.launchpad.net/YourAccount
especially
https://help.launchpad.net/YourAccount/ImportingYourPGPKey
and
