    You need to Migrate all the files and Database's across. The seller should do it for you unless he stated that he wont transfer the site.

    Hostgator offer a site transfer service but its quite expensive.

    Open up a thread on BHW (Hire a freelancer section) and try and find someone who can do it for cheaper here on BHW :)

    Good luck

    As long as you have the domain name you should be able to contact Hostgator support. It shouldn't be a problem creating the new files from scratch just like doing a new website. You can basically use the same content that you purchased and you may heve to copy it to an external database first.
