Drupal 6 has already been marked as unsupported as Drupal 8 has come along. With the advancements that Drupal 8 has brought along this is the right time to migrate to Drupal 8 and be updated about the latest security patches and open a new world of possibilities as Drupal 8 is out of the box headless.

We at Faichi have extensive experience in migrating Drupal sites.  With past experiences we have learnt that the process of migrating the Drupal sites has many repetitive steps and there is an opportunity to make the migration process faster.
