Hi friends , I’ve just found a nice domain name for my website.
Is there a proper way to know if the domain I am about to buy blacklisted / penalized before?
Thank you very much for all your help.

You can see if it is currently indexed by Google by searching site:domain.com

Thanks very much. But I think if it’s not listed it may be not because of a penalisation / blacklisting?
It is a 5 years of old domain.

Hi friend, thanks very much for your time, I really appreciate it.
I already checked the ones above and just wanted to be sure thinking at ThemeForest there are far more experienced authors / buyers than me.

So , if it looks clean on those, then can we be 100% sure about it?
Any other thoughts?

We cant be a 100% sure.
But if its clean on those sites, I believe it might be safe to purchase the domain. Check this article I found, I hope it helps: 6 Ways To Find Out If You Are On The Google List Of Blacklisted Sites
