For uploading debian packages you may want to install the package,
dupload. The man pages detail clearly the steps to take to upload the
debian packages to the appropriate debian location.

If you are building a new package, you should upload the source, the
diffs, the deb, and the changes file. dupload takes care of the
details.  Typically, if the package is new, or the debian version
number is -0 or -1, the build package (say dpkg-buildpackage) program
by default sets up the source control file for source and binary
uploads. You can circumvent the default behaviour by using -sa or -sd
with dpkg-buildpackage. Again read the manual.
