You can't confirm if somebody controls a domain by contacting the 
applicant - probably you meant for domains that are not directly owned 
by the applicant you'd have to contact the domain owner...

...Which in my opinion should be prohibited in any case. I believe that 
the certificate subject should identify the entity that runs and stands 
behind the site and not some possible third party that provides some 
hosting or other service.
