How to buy a domain correctly?

I plan to buy a website. I buy for the first time.
I thought about how to correctly transfer the domain. GoDaddy registrar. The seller simply offers to transfer the domain under management to my account. I don't know if this is right or not.

He will still remain the domain administrator. What could be the danger of it(f.e. the seller will submit an application in a year to have his domain returned under the control of his account), is it worth doing this at all?

How are domains generally sold?

So do you buy only the domain, or the domain with the website?
If only the domain, then everything is simple. If together with website, then you will still need to get all the files and databases guaranteed.
Here you can not do it without an intermediary. There are special exchanges for the site selling.


In most cases, the domain zone is not linked geographically in any way.
Although some domain zones are "closed" to those who are not a citizen of the state or a company registered in this state (and there are many of them) — for example, MO (Macau), NO (Norway), MA (Morocco), etc. I like MA — my initials are like this).
And in some zones — access is open only to "favorites" or has significant restrictions, for example: AERO, TRAVEL, PRO, JOBS.
There are also such as TEL — "a domain that does not need hosting", a business card website and a domain name in one.

By the way, there have been attempts to allow companies to create their own domain zones, for example, INTEL, SUN domains... They could afford it.
generally, the writing method itself is "inhuman", domains are read from right to left. i.e., first the zone, then the domain name, then the domain name of the third level. Which is also used for phishing.
