UK Web hosting provider Supanet Hosting ( announced on Friday it is extending its free one year hosting promotion to an additional 1,000 customers.

"The rush to sign up meant that a number of people missed out on the offer, therefore we have decided to continue offering it for a limited time only so even more people can experience our top quality Web hosting services," says Andrew Barton, marketing manager for Supanet Hosting

The company recently announced it would offer a free year of Web hosting to the first 1,000 customers who applied.

Wait, wait. Slow down.

Err, well that sounds great and all but after doublechecking the terms of service for it on their website there's a catch. What may you ask is the catch?

The free hosting account is subject to a £5.99 setup fee. Oops, I guess there really is no such thing as a free lunch. Or in this case free web hosting. As far as I'm aware this breaks a number of laws in the UK -- anyone care to let me know which specific ones?
