Are Plugins From WordPress Transfered Over During Migration?

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 ZenCache
