As you can see on "Moved Permanently", http://snort.org has just a redirect
to https://www.snort.org.

https://snort.org hangs until timeout is reached because there is no
service really listening on 443 port of this address.

I don't know why just wget's user-agent is redirected to localhost , but
you can still use wget directly with https://www.snort.org:

wget -c https://www.snort.org
