The Dark Web

The darkside of the Internet, I just wanted to research more about this and what it actually is and reply my opinion on my own personal blog. What is the Dark Web? Dark Web Definition: “The Dark Web is a term that refers specifically to a collection of websites that are publicly visible, but hide the IP addresses of the servers that run them. Thus they can be visited by any web user, but it is very difficult to work out who is behind the sites. And you cannot find these sites using search engines.” (

After reading the article I find that the dark web or Internet or whatever you want to call it is no different than any other website except they choose not to allow it to be indexed by search engines and there addressee and other information that’s usually available is encrypted. They mainly use tor for the encryption but other technologies are used also.

Want to surf the dark web, well download tor at: and download the Tor Browser Bundle, which contains all the required tools. Run the downloaded file, choose an extraction location, then open the folder and click Start Tor Browser. That’s it, except the fact that you have to now what dark website your visiting because you cant use a search engine for them you will need the except URL location to visit the site then use there same encryption technology which is most likely tor.
