Are Plugins From WordPress Transfered Over During Migration?

Posted January 6, 2016 1.9k views

I’ll be transferring over my wordpress site from a shared hosting to Digital Ocean. I have read through tutorials on how to do that. My question is, after migration is complete will my original plugins work? Also if i want to install new plugins is it as simple as installing through /wp-admin area in the browser as it was through shared hosting?

Here are some of my current plugins:
Disqus Comment System
Google Analytics by Yoast
Jetpack by Wordpress
WP Simple Adsense Insertions
Yoast SEO
