Yes, that’s done everyday, everywhere in the world. Websites are just a bunch of files and sometimes a database. Basically all you need to do is to copy all the files and the database to the new server, adjust the domain/path settings, and you’re done.
Wordpress has an extensive article on how to move it, you just need to do a simple internet search.
Ah, well, it is so simple that I’ve done it for you: http://codex.wordpress.org/Moving_WordPress
