    I suggest you use google. I am sure there are tons of people who have done this before and can share info.

    Another simpler option would be to keep a text file hosted online, write the version number of the most updated version, and on load have the program read the file to see if the number is greater than the current version, and give them a link to download it. Not fully what you were looking for, but you can build upon it and see what you can do with it.
