There's really no way to purchase a domain outright permanently.

You can only register a domain and keep it renewed for as long as 10 years at a time.

If you want to keep the domain name the rest of your life you'll need to continually renew the domain each year or every 5 years or when the 10 year domain registration gets down to a few years then renew it again so it will be good for another 10 years.

10 years is a pretty long time as well so just keep renewing the domain for as long as you're alive and if your family or kids want to keep the domain after you die then they'll need to keep it renewed to keep the domain in their control.
