Unable to join domain. My Active Directory Domain Name is same as the company web domain.

When I try to join my local domain which has same name as Website the system responds as

An Active Directory Domain Controller (AD DC) for the domain "domain name" could not be contacted.

pinging domain name returns public IP address of the website and not the server IP address.

    I'd check the domain controller and problem member both have the static ip address of DC listed for DNS and no others such as router or public DNS.
