This is probably a lame idea, but what about using somewhere like Weebly to host Bargainlover. All you need is the domain. Sure you don't get full control over the site(e.g uploading of your own HTML etc) but its free. And you can add polls, Google Adsense etc. That way you only need the domain registration yearly or whatever and one or two people to help.

Not that lame an idea, but perhaps something like Tumblr would be better - you can add your own CSS etc and get some pretty crazy designs, and you have the added value of people following or reblogging the posts you create. Plus it auto updates to FB and Twitter over set periods during the day.
I dunno why a company wouldn't jump at the chance of having exclusive banner advertising for a month. You must get a buttload of unique visitors.
