I am trying to understand if I own the domain name I purchased because I haven't actually published my website.

I was going to design this by myself but found someone to design for me through Word Press.

Because I couldn't figure out how to access the website domain name I purchased through Intuit, I purchased another domain name through GoDaddy at my web designer's request. The one purchased through GoDaddy is up and running but I would prefer the one I requested through Intuit. I'm unclear as to how to make this my website address. I'm very technologically challenged...

Can anyone help?

Of course we can help. You can point the domain from us to Godaddy, or you can transfer the domain.  Pointing means the domain will stay hosted with us, but will bring up your Wordpress site.  Transfer means the domain moves to Godaddy for hosting.  The problem is that the government regulates domains very tightly.  It must stay with us for a minimum of 60 days before it can be transferred.  You can point until 60 days is up, and then transfer.

Thanks

What is the process to move the domain name to another hosting service
It is impossible to get to customer service for any of your services. Have been happy with the design software, but service is poor.

This is a great conversation that's separate from the main topic, so I created a new topic to continue the discussion. Please reference the new topic here: What is the process to move the domain name to another hosting service?
