shoeboxfurniture.homestead.com, is a URL that will work. It is designed so that you are not required to have a domain to use a website. You do have a registered domain which is what you will give to people. Visitors will only see shoeboxfurniture.homestead.com if you provide them this address.

Correct. They could see it if you give them the address. It is a valid URL, but you provide the domain name and that is what they will see. CabinetBedSofva.homestead.com has always existed for cabinetbedsofva.com
