It depends where you put them ;) Sorry .... I'm kidding.

You can either render them before you serve them to the Web, which doesn't
sound bad first, but unfortunately it takes a long time. As alternative you
can use mod_tile, an extension for the apache webserver, which renders on
demand, and as an advantage serves cached tiles much faster than apache

Hope I could help you.
