It looks like your domain is redirecting to your BigCommerce store now. The way you have it pointing is how we would recommend pointing it, that or pointing nameservers.

My deepest apologies, themieleman, I did not see that your domain was pointing to Homestead from register.com, which would explain why you are not able to see the edit Nameservers option.

You would edit your nameservers at register.com since that is where your domain is hosted. Keep in mind, this will disrupt the connection to your current website with Homestead because it will be completely with your BigCommerce store.
