Using bitbucket as version control

I feel really asking this, but I've been looking over bitbucket documentation for hours and can't figure out how to work it into workflow. I'm working on a small team (3 of us) doing a php site, and we would like to be able to use bitbucket to version control our code. Ideally we'd have a place to view our working code ( and then see alternate branches at or something like that -- so we can view our branches and when we are happy with a new branch/version we can just push it to the main one, and, in theory also our actual site host. Is that possible? Or is there a better way to achieve that idea with BitBucket?

You're asking "How to make BitBucket serve php pages". This is not possible. It is written on the documentation:

You cannot use PHP or other server-side scripting languages on the site.
