comment Why isn't HTML/CSS/HTML5 considered a programming language?
@TreyTaylor - HTML 5 doesn't. CSS is starting to add things that may make it Turing complete, one day. When that day comes, yes, CSS could be called a programming language (variables are not enough).

comment How to validate a given domain is owned by the user?
@FezVrasta - a domain may not have any email servers associated with it, and if it does, there is no guarantee that an info@ (or any local address) would be defined on it, or that it will have a monitored catch-all address.
