It may be a blackhole router between you and the website. Some path  
that has a slightly smaller MTU but has ICMP disabled so the need to  
fragment messages aren't sent.

Try pinging with a 1500 byte packet and see if it reaches. If it  
doesn't decrease the size until it does and you then know what the  
short MTU size is and you can set that as your MTU on your outside  
interface of your router. A "workaround" solution.
