One of the things about having a WordPress website is that there are several factors that control your website's health, well-being and performance.
One of them that controls your site's compatibility with Plug-ins - among other things - is the version of PHP that you're running.
Now, if you've been on a Managed WordPress host like GoDaddy, BlueHost, HostGator or even WPEngine for several years, there's a good chance your website is running an older version of PHP, like 5.0 or 5.2.
WPEngine is the only host that is requiring updates, allowing you to test on a one click staging environment, and identifying incompatible plug-ins that will break once they upgrade your site.
But GoDaddy Managed WordPress makes it easy to upgrade as well.
