I ask from total ignorance, but I have created some fractals using Visual Basic and directX. What's the easiest way to put the code onto a website so that users can click and run the code?

It's impossible, sort of. If you could have users run code from your server easily, then you can install spyware or backdoors on their computers. Because of this, web browsers prevent direct execution.

You can get close, though. Package your program as a standalone executable, and upload it to a web server. Clicking the link will download the executable, and the user may then run it.
