    You need to

    You need to make sure you are listed as the owner of the domain name.
    and you are the owner of the account where the site is hosted.
    if the person you bought it from is the host, and you don't trust them you need
    to move your site for their sakes and yours.
    what I personally do when buying a domain like that is transfer the domain name to a different registar. I use simpleurl.com
    that way I know every thing is all set for that domain to be mine.
    I personally host my own stuff, I have my own server so I just move the site to my server.
    www.rdcss.us
    make sure all cpanel passwords are yours and strong.
    make sure you make new ftp users etc.
    do not leave a back door for the former owner or their workers to get into your stuff. This way if something does get changed by accident the previous owners do not get blamed and you won't feel he or she hacked you.
    sorta like changing all the locks on your house when you move in.
