How I can associate my domain on Homestead and site at Zoho? They say: Forward your root domain 'yourdomain.com' to domain name with www. But I do not see "Forward" option for my domain at Homestead.

Forwarding is an undesirable redirect according to search engines. You are better off asking if they have nameservers you can use, or DNS records. If you can get those, you can make those edits on the domains tab in your account, and I can help if you need it.

I'm confused. They say: "1st - Forward the domain name (domain name without www) to www.yourdomain.com (domain name with www) and save the changes. 2 - Go to DNS configurations / Manage DNS section, add a "CNAME Record" with the host name "www" and point it to zhs.zohosites.com." I made the second point. Can you help me?  Link for instructions: https://zohosites.wiki.zoho.com/domain-mapping.html

I see you contacted support and are transferring the domain. Have you started the transfer? When you do, the records will probably be changed by the new host again. I did correct the www redirect for you, but it will take some propagation time before we see if it works. I do not know what the A record is 74.201.154.208. This is not ours.
