100% Packet lost, but i can access the website

-
Hey,

Another weird thing I'm not getting. I can access a website, but when I pinged it, I've got 100% packet lost. Any explanations ? (feel free to send me documentation, I've read some stuff but any relevant doc is welcome !)

Thank you
SOme site deny ping request. If they accepted them, you could ping them with a chain of HUGE packets, and shut it down (deny of service).

That is why!
What !!! Shuting down a website with pings in 2018 ?
Your answer makes sens tho, it also explain why I couldnt trace it with traceroute (since it is ICMP too, right ?)
