When I try to connect my server to the domain I am  receiving the error:

The following error occurred attempting to join the domain "ARIKKAN"
The specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted.

Screenshots are below.

Also, I have attempted to change the "SysvolReady" value between 0 and 1 without any luck.

Is there anything else I need to change? Does the Wins Proxy need to be enabled?

Do you have the windows Firewall enabled? Try disabling it and adding to see if that resolves the error. If it does, you need to let Active Directory through. Also, there are no screenshots.

Use the domain.com notation for your domain when adding the computer to it. Particularly if these computers are not in the same subnet. Using the NetBIOS name requires a NetBIOS lookup, which does not traverse routers. Your NSLookup attempt is not formed correctly. You have to enter _ldap._tcp.domain.com, not just _ldap._tcp

Solution:

I forgot to set my DNS to the ip of my domain controller. Answer was given to me more specifically in the screenshot attached from Microsoft.
