How to ping a website?

Experts,

I was wondering what is the command in DOS to ping a website like www.Yahoo.com with a packet size of 1000?  Is this correct:

Ping -l 1000 www.yahoo.com

thanks

yes, larger the data size, long the round trip time.

okay, so then the reason why it would take longer is obviously the size that we are sending?

okay so using the same ping address with 1000 packets if we wanted to ping in for 15 times, we would use .

Ping -l 1000 -n 15 www.yahoo.com  ?
