Why is it not domo. The case is confusing

domus is a noun that uses the locative case for specifying location (no movement to or from that location). domi is the locative form.

domo could be used if it was "from home", a movement away from home.

I put 'Panis est domi' - it was said to be correct. I checked on the comment site where it stated - 'Panis domi est' was correct. Are they both correct? How/when will I get an answer?

Both are correct. Word order is not very strict in Latin - therefore the use of declensions.
