I followed the directions under the question (How can I switch my domain too a new site I built?)
I then received 404 error and proceeded to follow directions on how to solve this issue.
After renaming the site with a (1) at the end and then removing the (1) and searching then saving, publishing again.
Yet now when I type in www.remote-mast.com it only directs me to a Homestead message.

This happened because you need to change your nameservers back to Homestead before you switch your site over. Your nameservers are currently pointing to Cloudflare. This will prevent our system from changing the DNS from the old builder to the new builder. Please reset your nameservers back to default, then try changing the site association for your domain again.

Thank you but I thought I needed Cloudflare for https security. Can my address be www.remote-mast.homestead.com and still have https?

Yes, the new builder has an automatic SSL, so it will be secure and you won't need to use Cloudflare.

Elyzabeth, In setting up my new store I wish to use PayPal as the provider for both PayPal payments and all other CC payments. I don't see an option for this. I ran my other website that way. Customers simply clicked on a button (I don't have a PayPal Account) 

Also I thought a shipping calculator was included with the store but no shipping appears in check out.

Please advise

Jerry

Hello,

You currently have Paypal activated. You can find this under Store > Manage Products and Orders > Settings > Payment Providers.

If you need more advanced shipping, you can use Shippo:
