When most people talk about the Internet, they actually think of “Clearnet”. It is only a fraction of the whole system which is based on a internet protocol based system. Think of an iceberg in the middle of the ocean. It looks very big, but in reality the iceberg you see floating above the water is only one percent of the entire iceberg. The remaining 99% of the iceberg is hidden underwater. Likewise, the part of the Internet that most people use is Clearnet, a fraction of the whole.
If the tip of the iceberg can be used to describe the Clearnet, then what’s beneath the surface? Well, it’s called Deep Web. It is the part of the World Wide Web (www), the contents of which are not indexed by the traditional search engines available on the Clearnet. Simply put, the Deep Web is made up of databases and services such as online banking and webmail that are not indexed by standard search engines. Deep web content can only be accessed through a direct URL which is not known to everyone. You must know the direct URL to access a page or an IP address. Sometimes, even if you know the direct URL, you cannot pass the public page without a password or other security access. In-depth webcasts network wide and encompass Dark Web services.
The infamous Dark Web is the part of the World Wide Web that is made up of different networks. Special software, authorization, and configuration are required to access information on the dark web. These networks are operated with complete discretion by individuals and local organizations. The dark web accessible using the Tor browser is also called “Onionland”. This is because URLs used to access websites using the Tor browser always end with .onion, instead of the traditional .com in Clearnet.
People use the Tor browser to access the dark web because it guarantees the safety and anonymity of the user. Tor stands for The Onion Router. It uses voluntary overlay networks to direct Internet traffic. It helps to conceal user activity and location from anyone traffic analysis and network monitoring. By using Tor browser, it becomes difficult for anyone to track any user’s internet activity. They are unable to record the web pages they visit, the clicks they make, the instant messages they send, and the online posts they publish. Anyone can join the Tor network and provide more relays to make information about themselves anonymous. An easy way is to use a separate VPN, in addition to the Tor browser, such as “Cyber Ghost”. This way, anyone trying to view your activity will not be able to tell whether you are using Tor browser or not.
Interestingly, you might not know it, but the government is partially funding the Tor network. The main reason the government funds the Tor network is to provide an anonymous communication channel for dissidents and our spies in hostile countries. Some people think the government is funding it to see the traffic and information going through it. The dark web, however, is dangerous enough to deter any novice user. Criminals who sell and buy the worst of evils can locate you or infect your computer if you’re not careful. The best way to stay safe on the dark web is to use as many relays and keep it as secret as possible.
The dark web is predominantly and predominantly used for anything illegal. It is used by vendors to sell all types of recreational drugs including hash, cocaine, marijuana, crystal meth, LSD (acid), mushrooms, heroin, etc. The market on the dark web is not limited to these drugs, but there are also people on the dark web that anyone can contact and commission to kill someone. Yes, they are contract killers who kill other people for money. Some people think the site offering these services was just a “honeypot” run by the FBI. Speaking of the dark web, these things don’t even cover the surface of the services provided by the entire market. It is also used for buying and selling child pornography, rape videos, and videos made by killing other people. So if you’ve ever wondered how you would get there, forget it. Spend your time on Clearnet and enjoy a dangerous internet experience above digital ground.
