I'm trying to click on "Custom Domain" and "Guided Transfer" in the Store section of the WordPress website, and neither link is working for me. Please help!
Need help? Check out our Support site, then
Why are the wordpress.com links in the Store not working for me?
Guided transfer is to move a blog FROM WordPress.COM onto another host that is using WordPress.ORG software
All upgrades require an active base blog to buy the upgrade for.
First you need to register a blog name that you like for your move onto WordPress.COM. Then you can buy and map a domain name to the blog.
If you have an existing domain name you will want to map the existing domain name to the blog here.

Hi. I'm back. Sorry, I'm new to trying all this. So, is it not possible to import all the HTML from our Homestead design into WordPress? I've mapped our domain from Homestead to WordPress, but to get our site up and running, do we need to basically start the design of the website over again?
yes you need to pretty much start over - but if you saved your html stuff you can paste the text in

If you copy and paste text from somewhere else, you may discover that it does not always appear exactly as you would expect. If you use the Paste as text button then a special cleanup process will run to remove any special formatting and HTML tags that may otherwise change your text.
