    HI mnmhemaj

    To achieve checking for if a user exists.  You can use PrincipalContext to authenticate user credentials,

    public bool DoesUserExist(string userName)
        using (var domainContext = new PrincipalContext(ContextType.Domain, "DOMAIN"))
            using (var foundUser = UserPrincipal.FindByIdentity(domainContext, IdentityType.SamAccountName, userName))
                return foundUser != null;

    Moreover, you can also check relevant topics about user existed in Active Directory asp.net online, more examples are available for you.
    Best regards
