I was trying to ping through the Dos prompt shell Window (Is there any other way?) some sites like google, minijuegos,etc. when I reach this site and I wasn't able to ping it. I can't understand why.

There's what happens when I ping this site...

Because some servers do not reply to ping requests.
Google "Ping flood" or "Ping of Death" to find out why.

Ping itself is not an attack. The ICMP protocol is meant to
determine if a host/server is up. Bad guys found ways to exploit
this service so they turn off ICMP replies.
As for why you can't ping google i can't say without more info
about your network, internet connection, firewall, etc.
I can ping google, but i get "request timed out" at torrentz.com.
