If someone does go to the extent of trying to guess your URL (or stumble across it in a 1/1,000,000 accident), there's nothing to stop them viewing source - plucking it from their cache, or using a non-js browser.
So long as you're not publishing the URL, then that will remain your primary defence. Secondary levels of security are valid, especially when there is chance that the location will leak out (eg. as a referer), but js trickery is more than likely to annoy your valid visitors rather than act as any sort of barrier.
What server is being used ?
If this is a commercial hosting (as apposed to ISP freespace) then you should have access to a far easier, and better method.
