FWIW, you can also use TestFlight with an Enterprise developer account (I think it's limited to 1000 users) but an Enterprise distribution certificate frees you from the hassle of managing device IDs - for an extra $200/year it's almost certainly worth it for avoiding the pain of the provisioning portal on a regular basis.

TestFlight (not testApp - sorry) also lets the users pull the app update,
so it's like using the app store without using the app store. As he
mentioned, if you're going to be at 99 users or under, you can just put
their devices on your developer profile and and testFlight will put the
relevant profile on their device so they can execute your app.
Once you're over 99, you need to purchase an Enterprise license, to do your
own private distribution.

On the first day, God created the heavens and the Earth
On the second day, God created the oceans.
On the third day, God put the animals on hold for a few hours,
and did a little diving.
And God said, "This is good."
