Yes. DigitalOcean only gives you a virtual server (they call it a droplet), where you can install an OS from the selection. You have complete control over the server and can host as many websites as you want.
Just remember to think about resources. A regular installation of Ubuntu with Apache, MySQL and PHP to run a single WordPress installation consumes almost the entire $5 server (when looking at amount of RAM).
