What is dark net/deep net?
Darknet/deepnet refers to a collection of webpages (somewhat 70,000+) dealing with anything or everything illegal and cant be brought into sunlight. Common man doesn’t need any such services in any point. But evil geniuses are behind them, use or misuse them for personal profits.
Darknet websites are generally inaccessible through search engines, as their robot.txt file, which helps search engines index the website, are configured in such a way that search engine indexing is discouraged. Moreover these web pages are designed such a way that the origin and ending of data traffic stays anonymous. Even the domain name is anonymous and you cant find the owner of the domain easily.
These websites are inaccessible with normal browsers without software modification. This is because the domain name itself is not a familiar one for browsers and end with a .onion extension. They can be processed only with a TOR browser, available here. You may download and install it in your PC to see how it works. After installation, it will make a quick automatic setup by itself to configure the network according to its settings.
Once the configuration is complete, you can enter the TOR network of darknet websites by typing or copy-paste of this address to the browser address bar: http://am4wuhz3zifexz5u.onion/ . This is the safest of all websites in the darknet to try. Don’t forget that you can open this URL with TOR browser only as normal browsers cannot open this type of URLs.
