Secure download location

I'm wanting to set up a situation where people can download an update of
my program via a "download update" menu script, but keep the URL from
being known. I was tinkering with the revGoURL ftp route, but my
username and password show up in the browser history, which is, of
course, not good!
I've been reading the docs about all the URL stuff. I took a look at the
Tutorials from So Smart Software and I'm getting more, not less
confused. It seems like there's a lot of options, though the difference
between them isn't clear to me yet. Basically I need to protect myself
from people just downloading the software who haven't paid, but make it
easy for those who have paid to download the latest version. Because
it's a low-dollar item I can't afford to be manually processing stuff -
I want my computer & web site to take care of 99% (that's why they made
computers - right!?).
If someone can help get the twist out of my shorts, I'd appreciate it!
