The deep web is the part of the internet that is not indexed by search engines. A part of the deep web is the dark web, which exists inside layered proxy networks—known as darknets. Of these darknets, Tor (short for “The Onion Router”) is by far the largest.
In this article, learn more about dark web links (also called Tor links or onion sites), then check out some of the best Tor sites.

What are onion sites?
Onion sites (aka Tor sites) are websites only accessible on the dark web; you can’t view them using a regular browser. Their URLs have .onion as the domain, instead of the common surface web domains like .com or .net. Onion sites are considered hidden in the deep web, and they use Tor to encrypt connections to them, keeping visitors and the site creators anonymous.
How do onion sites work?
When you try to connect to a .onion website, your traffic gets routed around the internet, bouncing three times to random servers before it reaches your destination website. Each server adds a layer of encryption, and these layers give rise to the name The Onion Router. This is also why the sites on the dark web are called Tor links.
There are at least three hops your data travels through.
- The entry node, which inevitably knows your IP address
- The middle (or relay) node, which prevents the exit node from finding out which entry node you used and makes it very hard to correlate this information
- The exit node, which knows what site you are connecting to, but does not know who you are
The three nodes separate your IP address from your destination and enable two individuals to communicate without either party, or any middleman, knowing who the other is.
Tor and the Onion Browser
Inside the Tor network, sites cannot use regular domain names. Instead, they use pseudo-domain names ending in .onion. These domain names are not registered with a central authority but are instead derived from cryptographic keys.
You can’t access these .onion sites from your normal web browser—the one you’re probably viewing this page on. Before clicking any of the dark web links below, you’ll need to get the Tor Browser (also called the Onion Browser) or another service that provides dark web access, such as the Brave browser.
Note that connections inside of the Tor network are end-to-end encrypted by default, meaning there is no separate encryption layer necessary as with regular websites. That’s why most onion sites do not have the S in HTTPS. Fear not; the Tor Browser will show an onion instead of the familiar lock icon when your connection is secure.
How to access onion sites

- Click “Start Browsing”
- You’re in!
Best onion sites by category
Though the dark web is infamous for hosting all manner of illicit content—dark web marketplaces for buying illegal drugs, gore sites, and worse—there are plenty of legitimate sites and services available if you know where to look.
Here are some of the best .onion sites on the dark web, grouped by category:
Dark web search engines
Search engines on the dark web are a bit of a contradiction because dark web sites by definition are not indexed by traditional search engines.
Ahmia, however, is not a traditional search engine. Founded by security researcher Juha Nurmi, Ahmia is essentially a list of “hidden” sites that do want to be found. Onion sites are “crawled” and added to the list provided their “robots.txt” file permits it, and if it is not on their blacklist of sites with abuse material. Site operators can also submit their own .onion sites for indexing.
Similar to Ahmia, Haystak is also an onion search engine that uses a custom dark web crawler and filters out dangerous content.
Haystak also offers a premium version that allows advanced search, access to historical content, and email alerts.
Torch is one of the oldest and most popular onion search engines on the dark web, serving over 80,000 requests per day. Torch is funded primarily through advertising—purchased in BTC, of course—which is why you’ll find the front page blanketed with old-school banner ads of dubious origins.
The internet’s favorite alternative to Google made a name for itself by not logging your search activity yet still providing decent results. This focus on privacy makes it the Tor Browser’s default search engine and one of the best onion search engines.
Unlike Ahmia and Haystak, however, DuckDuckGo doesn’t search .onion sites. Use it to search the normal internet from the privacy of your Tor Browser.
The Hidden Wiki
One of the most popular ways to get around the dark web is not to use a search engine at all. Just like in the old days of the internet, the dark web maintains numerous indexes of sites, like The Hidden Wiki.
This community-edited .onion Wikipedia contains a bunch of Tor links to a wide variety of services and sources running on the dark web. Many of those dark web links are defunct, and even more of them link to scams or potentially illegal activities. Click at your own risk!
TorLinks serves as a backup or secondary directory site to the popular Hidden Wiki. It’s divided into commercial links (from crypto services to gambling sites) and non-commercial links (like social media). But it’s not as detailed as the Hidden Wiki. As always, use Tor Links with care, as it includes onion links to dubious or illegal activity.

News, media, and other information organizations
The first online publication that won a Pulitzer became the first major publication with a .onion address.
ProPublica does a lot of things differently. Its source of funding is the deep wallet of the Sandler Foundation and various other similar organizations.
Browsing ProPublica’s work through its .onion site works well, and the site’s very existence is a big win for privacy and free speech.
Archive.today (formerly known as Archive.is) is a platform that aims to preserve the web’s cultural and scientific heritage.
Founded in 2012, it stores snapshots of websites, making it possible to “go back in time” and see what websites used to look like and what information they contained.
Archive.today is considered an important tool to track changes across government and corporate websites, preserve cultural heritage, and keep knowledge outside of autocrats’ reach. You can archive any site you want, or retrieve historical records wherever available.
The New York Times
To make its journalism more accessible to readers around the world, the New York Times launched its onion service in 2017. You won’t find any “hidden” stories here—it’s the same content as the normal web edition—but users in countries with government censorship will appreciate having a secure way to access it.
Following the NYT, the BBC launched a dark web “mirror” of their international edition in 2019. Note that some features of the normal website are not available on the .onion version, including BBC iPlayer.
Why would one of the largest organizations known for its invasiveness and controversial clear-name policy have a .onion address?
Facebook is aware of attempts by many governments to restrict access to a tool that allows strangers across the web to talk and collaborate freely. While its .onion address doesn’t make it much easier to maintain an anonymous account, it does make Facebook more accessible in places where it’s censored.
The CIA might seem an odd inclusion in a list for privacy enthusiasts, but Tor actually has an unlikely history with the U.S. government: it was first developed by the U.S. Navy to help informants posted in foreign countries to relay information back safely. In that spirit, the CIA launched an onion site to help people around the world access its resources securely.
Wasabi Wallet is a Bitcoin wallet that not only hides all your data in the Tor network but also allows you to “join” your transactions with others to increase your anonymity. This makes it incredibly difficult to find out who you are paying.
The process costs a fee, but unlike other “tumbler” or “mixing” services, there is no risk that Wasabi or any of its users could scam you out of your coins.
Based in Switzerland, ProtonMail is an encrypted email service that is very popular with cryptocurrency enthusiasts. It’s not free, but it’s extremely secure.
Riseup is a volunteer-run email provider for activists around the world.
Founded around 1999 by activists in Seattle, it has since grown to over six million users worldwide. It publishes a newsletter in multiple languages and not only runs onion services for its website but all its email and chat services.
Other privacy tools and services
Keybase is an exciting identity service that aims to make it easy for you to link the presence of your online identities together in a cryptographic way. You can upload your PGP key or have the site create one for you, and use it to cryptographically link your Twitter profile, Github account, or Bitcoin address together.
Keybase also offers extremely user-friendly secure chat and file-sharing services through its app.
Pastebins are text sharing services, useful for sending and sharing large snippets of code or text. ZeroBin offers an extra secure version of this service by only encrypting and decrypting text in the browser, meaning their servers have no knowledge of what is passing through it.
A favorite of journalists and their anonymous sources, SecureDrop makes it easy to share confidential information without revealing your identity. Many news publications, like the ones listed above, have a SecureDrop on their .onion sites.
MegaTor is a super-simple anonymous file sharing service that’s not available on the normal internet. Best of all, it’s free and decently fast.
The tools we’ve listed above are just the tip of the iceberg. If you’re interested in privacy and the dark web, take a deep dive into PrivacyTools, an extensive directory of anti-surveillance tools, services, and educational materials.
Impreza Hosting is a service that helps you host a site on the Tor network. It provides an .onion URL and an interface for you to manage your Tor site easily. It also boasts that no personal information is required to use the service, and payment can be made with cryptocurrency.
While technically not an onion site, we’re including Sci-Hub as an interesting example of a site you can access via Tor. Sci-Hub gives access to millions of scientific papers, mostly ones from behind paywalls. However, due to copyright infringement, Sci-Hub is considered illegal and banned in many countries. Just like any other site, visit it at your own risk.
What is the dark web?
The dark web contains content that’s only accessible through networks like Tor. Sites in the dark web have .onion as their domain in their URLs. Tor browsers create encrypted entry points and pathways for the user, so dark web activity remains anonymous. The encryption technology routes users’ data through a large number of intermediate servers, which protects the users’ identity and guarantees anonymity.
Because of its anonymity, the dark web is filled with illegal services and is used by numerous criminal groups, including ransomware gangs. It is also used by whistle-blowers, journalists, and other individuals who are not involved in illegal activity but need to protect their communications and identities. Through the dark web, users in places of high censorship can also access information and news.
Difference between dark web and deep web
The dark web and the deep web are often used interchangeably, but they’re two distinct concepts. In short, the major difference between them is that the deep web contains internet content that you can’t find through search engines, while the dark web is a hidden network that requires a special browser to access.
The deep web is the part of the internet you can’t access through search engines like Google and Bing. Also referred to as “non-indexed” content, it’s any content hidden behind some kind of access control such as a log-in or code word. Ever wonder how big the deep web is? It contains 7,500 terabytes of information, compared with only 19 terabytes of information in the “surface” web. To look at it in a different way, it makes up between 90% and 95% of the internet.
The dark web, or the darknet, is a small subset of the deep web. It’s a hidden collective of sites that you could only access through a special browser. Since all activity on the dark web is anonymous by default, it is definitely where the murkiest transactions on the internet take place. A study by researchers at King’s College London that examined the contents of over 2,700 darknet sites found that approximately 60% of them hosted illicit content. With that said, legitimate websites also exist on the dark web.

FAQ: More about onion sites
What are onion sites used for?
Onion sites are used for a variety of purposes, but the common thread is privacy and anonymity, both for users and service providers. It is nearly impossible to trace the activity on onion sites, including the identities of people who use them.
Naturally, this makes the dark web a breeding ground for illegal activity. But onion sites can also serve nobler goals, like providing access to information and independent journalism in countries with government censorship.
Activists, whistle blowers, and journalists also use the dark web to communicate securely with sources and news organizations.
Is it illegal to visit onion sites?
It’s not illegal to visit any of the onion sites listed above. But as the dark web does contain illegal activity, we can’t guarantee you won’t stumble across illicit material as you dig deeper into it, nor can anyone guarantee your activity will remain completely untraceable. This is why we say to explore at your own risk!
What kind of content is on the dark web?
As mentioned above, much of the content on the dark web is the same as you might find on the normal internet (news, message boards, web services) but made accessible on a more anonymous platform.
Some content, however, is only available on onion sites so as to evade detection by law enforcement: namely gore sites and other illegal media, and marketplaces selling illegal items such as drugs, weapons, and fake documents.
Needless to say, we don’t condone any content forbidden by law.
What can you buy on the dark web?
You can buy almost anything on the dark web with Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies, from secondhand furniture to illegal drugs, porn, exotic animals, and all manner of criminal services-for-hire.
But that doesn’t mean you should! As stated above, we don’t condone any activity—on the dark net or otherwise—that is forbidden by law.
Can you access the dark web with a VPN?
Yes, you can connect to a VPN server before launching the Tor Browser to hide your IP address from any node in the Tor network, and to hide the fact that you are using Tor from your network operator.
This method is called Tor over VPN, and it’s a great way to increase your privacy over using Tor alone.
Are onion sites safe?
Because they have strong encryption, onion sites are safe in terms of privacy protection. However, as many onion sites feature illegal activity, it’s easy to imagine that they are more likely to contain malicious links, wrong information, scams, and generally content that you might not want to see.
As when visiting ordinary websites, stay alert to security risks on onion sites. Don’t click on suspicious links, be skeptical of what you read, and avoid dark web marketplaces if you don’t want to stumble on illegal activity or content.
Why can’t I access onion sites?
Onion sites are only accessible via the Tor Browser or similar services. They are not accessible through your mainstream browsers like Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
If you are using Tor Browser but still can’t access an onion site, it’s possible that the link has changed (the Tor Project upgraded onion links to become much longer during 2017-’18), or the site simply no longer exists or is temporarily down. You could try to visit a major site like Facebook’s onion site to check if your browser is working at all. This would verify if it’s a browser issue or just an issue with the site.
How many onion sites are there?
A 2019 study found that there were about 55,000 different onion sites, while only about 8,400 of them were active.
Can you be traced on Tor?
While no one can ever guarantee a method keeps your browsing completely untraceable, using Tor ensures your traffic is much harder to trace than if you’re using a normal browser. In fact, in most cases where people get caught doing something illicit using Tor, it’s because they’ve allowed themselves to be traced via other avenues.
How do I access onion sites on my mobile device?
-Download the Tor Browser app from here
-Open Tor Browser
-Once a connection is established, you should see an onion icon in your status bar
-Download Onion Browser from the App Store
-Open Onion Browser
-Click “Connect to Tor”
-Once connected, click “Next” to configure your security level: Insecure, Moderate, or Secure
-Click “Start Browsing”
Why is Tor so slow?
Tor provides anonymity by building circuits using three relays (servers). It also tries to use relays in different locations around the world. Meanwhile, many users are trying to use a limited number of relays—some of which will be low quality. While sending your traffic around the world in a volunteer-run network provides a high degree of anonymity, it also means putting up with slower speeds.
Does Tor hide your IP address?
Yes. If you browse the dark web using the Tor Browser, your IP address will be hidden from the sites you visit. When you use Tor, your traffic is routed through multiple relays (or servers). The final relay before reaching your destination is the IP address you’ll appear to have.
Who is Tor owned by?
The Tor Project, which oversees Tor software, is a non-profit organization run by computer scientists Roger Dingledine, Nick Mathewson, and a number of volunteers. In that sense, it does not have an owner.
Do I need a VPN if I use Tor?
Using a VPN along with Tor will give you even more privacy and anonymity. Connecting to a VPN first, then Tor (also known as “Tor over VPN” or “Onion over VPN”) gets you all the privacy protection of the Tor network, plus added protection that prevents any Tor node from seeing your home IP address.
If you only want to mask your IP address and don’t need to access the dark web, then going online with a VPN is much easier and faster than using Tor.
Does the CIA have an onion site?
Yes. The CIA launched a site on the dark web in 2019 to give people a secure way to contact the agency and report information.
How are onion sites hosted?
Onion sites are hosted on a web server in the same way as ordinary sites, but you change web server configurations so that it only responds to your localhost. Then, you configure Tor to designate it as a Tor service, which will give you an onion link to your site.

Wow that’s awesome
Onions websites are scam, do not purchase anything there, you will never get what you paid for
Yeah, the first sites are search engine and they’re sure but lol just look at the facebook one, man if you entered your id there bammm you are done just done man!
All are not scam some are.legit but.you will only find.them when you do deep and proper research before buying anything on dark web
Yes, one must be pragmatic and excruciating about checks and balances, as well as background vetting, before any type of double blind anonymous transactions, anywhere!
all is fake, use like a list for bad links and sites
This is malicious content. Do not go
It’s a cool list, a bit old but still very efficient.
Altho it might be safe to use and surf the dark web through these websites, it most definetly does not guarantee full safety.
Make sure to avoid any DIRECT contact with the main ways of interaction.
That is a fake “free” website asking me from the first atempt to download, to register with a free or paid account. Telling me i reached the limit of 5 downloads… on the first attempt :)))
Okay, Thank You… WAS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS

It’s functional to visit Tor to access restricted contents, and I think ExpressVPN can add more features such as specialty servers, optimizing Tor networks. 😃
Hi. I just downloaded my express vpn, as well as my TOR browser. How do I now access the dark web? None of these sites listed above will grant me access. Is there something additional I need to do? Thanks for your help, if your willing to give it to me.
Hi, have you followed the steps here? https://www.expressvpn.com/blog/how-to-access-the-dark-web/
This needs to be taken down immediately. This is all malicious content and exposing everyone to phishing links and possible CP(kiddie stuff) from those search engine. Thankfully some are the expired V2 links. There is only 1 site offering legit links and its tor.taxi.That’s it. Maybe dark.fail but he’s getting tired and doesn’t update regularly. But if you can’t find it on tor.taxi, its not safe to go to.
Thanks, you’re right, these links should be removed.
Many of these web addresses are onion version 2, that no longer work, or will soon stop working. Onion v3 has a much longer address, as you can tell by looking at #5 on your list versus #6.
Thanks, we’ll take a look and update the post.
thanks i really liked deep web radio and hidden wiki
Where did I leave my keys?
No thanks, I really don`t want to explore the darkitydark swab.
Please I want to help to make some money

I’ll help out anyone who can help me successfully navigate the white house market safely.
Those CP websites have the wickedly stupid audacity to require PAYMENT ( via Bitcoin) and MEMBERSHIP!!! So!, show of hands!, how many people want to basically become card-carrying members of ,… THAT KIND of website?!?! … Anybody want to add their name ( and I.P. address ) to the roster??? … I didn’t THINK so!!! First, curiosity killed the cat. Then the dog ( who loves the cat ) goes in to help the cat,… and gets killed!!! Then the owner ( who loves them both ) rushes in and gets killed TOO!!! That’s exactly how these dark web CP websites more than likely work!!! But as the old saying goes,… fools rush in where angels dare not tread!!!
Please how can I get into dark Web. I want learn everything about loading, carding, and hacking
You need a private browser frist

I’ve heard lots of I wanna I wanna get on dark web.as one said you don’t join its not a club. It’s pretty serious people markets .nobody on. Dw is a jackoff. Anybody exploring should use your head don’t be mouthy or stupid. Fist time it hit it 5 minutes I was hacked. I have a great deal of respect for each an every person on d’s because they all have a talent.an if your stupid may be one you don’t like so much. So newbies don’t be so anxious that causes. Gullible stupid people. An watch your steps as not to step on any toes. It’s been years an still places I’ve not ventured into so be smart not naive an gullible.
ok tuff guy!!!!!! whatever you say – hacked in 5 mins my ass – what a joke you are – but hey ” It’s pretty serious people “
From the way you sound, i’d say you are the one who may need to evaluate if they are “stupid.”b b Idolizing scared people who feel so inferior they have to bother other people, and cause them a lot of harm and distress for no reason all while, so safely and so whimsy, sitting in a comfy chair, with a nice computer, hidden from sight by then computer screen – doesn’t sound as glamorous and purpose-driven as YOUR gullible mind seems to have fantasized into being by bloating those deflated egos of those hackers that would NEVER have the courage, if they felt like someone, or a group, was being unkind or unfair to them, they would NEVER have the courage or the guts to conbfron t that person or people and actually engage. At this point they’ve forgotten how. The3hy are not to b e feared, they are to be pitied, and I pity, and feel sorry for you that you would rather LIVE in the darkness, not visit, but move there, tan engage with the rest of the world even if it’s hard, frustrating, and anger producing at times. Welcome to being human – no matter how you decide to cope you will never be able to hack that fact, nor the way you are neurbiologically hardwired for connection, not isolation and little jolts here and there that make you feel powerful, for a brief moment, and then you need your next fix again. I hope you find the way through, but if you decide to proceed with you AWESOME plans and SUPER COOL designs to idolize these sad, lonely, isolated, and pathetic people, have at it. BEST OF LUCK and I hope you are able to outgrow the stupidity your “new friends” seem to have cornered the market with. It’s sad existence and people like you should be behind a therapist’s desk, not a computer desk. I hope you fail, and in an epic way. That’s honest, and yes sir, I would absolutely say it to your face and then explain EXACT:LY why I think that. You would ned er show up. Just like those scared little hackler freaks. They think they control the world, but the world goes on man, no o e thinks about hackers on any sort of regular basis, and everything hackers try to do are either avoidable or fixable or both, and life goes on while the hackers, who are diluted and think they own the air we breath and are the masters of the universe actually give all their power away evidenced by the fact that they spend 100% of their time focused on others, not themselves and their needs. Just what they can do to or get from others, others, others. People who hate themselves would naturally have a problem with thinking about their needs because when you don’t like who you are, other people’s needs seem to be more valuable than yours, so you focus on them so you don’t have to focus on the excruciating pain and sense of worthlessness that comes from that nasty parent, or that abusive teacher, the absent mother, or the violent father, Well… guess what??? WE ALL HAVE THAT KIND OF TRAUMA WE CARRY AND DEAL WITH BUT – the difference is that hackers feel the need to unload all their pain on others because they believe deep down that if they would just allow themselves to feel it and move through it, it would kill them. That’s why i labeled them “whimpy.” Cowards, if you will. Anyone who takes out their pain on someone else because they’re too afraid to face it themselves, are not only bullies, b ut they are at their core, authentic cowards who have decided to take the cheap, easy, and insanely selfish way out, and for that, I have zero respect. So hack away. No one cares because people who make that choice, DON’T MATTER, period.
Thanks for the List, love the article. I’m sorry you need to deal with these comments. The sheer stupidity is making me sad.

The original web site
This is a super cool article and I am reading all these and the comments using the TOR browser being already in the Dark Web Network. The Term is so mysterious that people tend to imagine a lot of trilling and mystical things to happen here in the dark web. Mostly influenced by the concept of being such a place that is deep underground, dark and filled with stuffs that are scary, illegal, outlawed etc. etc. and mostly due to lesser knowledge among general public.
I was also in the dark since I had little knowledge. But after reading this article and going through some of the genuine comments, my understanding about the dark web is clear as clean water.
Which is important for most of us who are open minded and would love to share information and get information without anyone getting involved since the identities are anonymous.
I am using an Alias to leave this comment. And I don’t need to verify my Identity to express my words and ideas over here. I am safe and I fear not to speak a free speech, think freely and explore without barriers.
Dark web is a paradise for some but for most, just a money making platform. Not So cool.
Well Kudos to your work and Keep educating us. A lot of people need help to clearly understand what a Dark Web actually is intended for!
Hey, what’s up. Let’s talk?
just what i want to say, darknet is not so cool

How do I get a trusted vendor here
lot of scam vendors
yes lots and lots of scams, fake phishing websites that look and respond to input EXACTLY like the actual website. Your best bet is to learn how to use PGP so you can verify a web page’s credentials, and do your research before buying anything from any vendor. Read comments/feedback, and verify where the information is coming from–don’t trust a website that has lots of great comments and reviews from “customers” when the reviews are coming from within the website because they are most likely fake reviews/post done by employees.
What’s this crap?……..Where the Drugs!
love your work
I did a shit while reading these comments
You are on the Dark Web.

I am totally lost ever since AOL went away. How am I supposed to be on the line if I dont have AOL? I had a kickass Packard Bell and eMachines computer, and phone cordy thing, and I was on the line once I put the AOL floppy disk in the 5.25″ drive. AOL WAS KING! now all I got is this stupid MSCIS, CEH, CISSP, and CISA certs that do WHAT? NOTHING I SAY! All these little script kiddies that need a mommy teat to suckle on, someone to hold their little hand, and type in URL’s for them so they can masturbate while looking at boobies online. Such is the depredation and stupidity of the majority today. LONG LIVE AOL!!!!

Is there someway to let us know what’s what here? I’m a little reserved about just clicking on onion links since they could lead to some pretty dark shit and I’m not really into using TOR for illicit purposes. If I can avoid clicking something bad, i’d appreciate it.
I want to learn how to hack, pls teach me,,,
And signup for dark web
You are all mentally slow idiots.
Cheers mate x
LOVE YOUR COMMENT!! Finally someone who isn’t lost in pouter space thinking that anyone anywhere for any reason would ever respect any of this hacker-idolization stuff, when we all know, they’re all scared tweens who hide from the world behind their computer screens, with a giant, oversized, grandiose sense of “power.” Please…, geta life, man, and yes… please stop being slow idiots for the sake of everyone who has to endure your epic stupidity second hand. CHEERS!!
what is dark web
A web with a black color
Can someone just please run me through the easiest way to get on the darkweb? Ps. I’m not in any way a weirdo that would look at sick shit fuck that! Anyway troops will someone help me as I’m getting nowhere with bullshit like ads ffs!
There is a video on you tube, I forgot it’s link or name, but type HOW TO GET TO DARK WEB in your you tube Q box.
Remember you really need to have some VPN app to hide your IP before you even type it on any google associated apps. I suggest you use DUCK DUCK GO as a search engine when looking for such stuff on the net.

Sho bra, I would wish to have your contacts there’s a lot I need from you I guess.

how can i accesto dark web

This is a very magnolia list. It is the list that the normal ‘click bait’ media sites would post. I am 99% sure that not one of those listed would be of interest to the peeps that came to check it out.
What would you recommend

*cough* read the article *cough* If at that point, you still do not understand how to access, and WHY to access the dark deep web, then go back to Farmville and plant some onions.

Pro Publica is a shill site for the Sandler Foundation. They ARE NOT proponents of free speech. They champion liberal progressive causes INCLUDING the silencing of dissent. Do more research.
A TRUE SPEECH !
OH NO !
how do i join the dark web
you are on the darkweb dude most often called deep web
You first should get a VPN. Ideally you want to get Express vpn as they are the absolute best in the market.
Then you go here https://www.torproject.org/
Once you download Tor it should be in your desktop. It works just like Firefox
Before you browse, you want to check your “Noscript” settings. Its on top right next to your search bar and adblocker.
When on noscript go to options, make sure to turn off everything except media, frame, font. This is to ensure safe browsing.
And you’re set you can visit whatever websites you otherwise wouldn’t be able to access in your country. Enjoy.
You should use tor and a vpn first to do so, also remember that .onion sites only work in tor
How to do a tor browser
Hi! You can download the Tor Browser from their official website.
I am completely gotten awed in the wake of analyzing your article. Being a dedicated peruser, I esteem examining articles on various concentrations and I am not settled to a specific point or subject. Your creation way is especially addictive and anchors in the readers in the most persuasive way. I found that by a long shot the greater part of the articles in your site kept me related, particularly this article. Much regarded!
Indubitably, I cannot, in good conscience, neglect to share my hearty agreement and approval of thy sentiments.
where do i sign up for this wab ?
So, after reading through many of the comments on this article, I can’t stop shaking my head. Most of you have no business even using a VPN much less being on TOR. While I have no issues with people just trying to educate themselves for the sake of education, the sheer amount of stupidity in this comment section is astounding.
1) you are SAFER using a VPN/tor combined than you will ever be on the regular internet.
2) yes there are free VPN’s available, however, they are ALL complete garbage. part of your subscription fees are going to a decent bandwidth, and some of your subscription fees are going to pay for hundreds of physical servers across the globe. Physical servers cost money. electricity is not free, real estate is not free, bandwidth is not free, customer service is not free.
3) You don’t “join” the dark web. if you “joined” the dark web you’re literally defeating the entire purpose of the dark web.
4) no the dark web is not “illegal” however there are more than enough websites available on the dark web that are VERY illegal. Many in most countries. however, there are also many legitimate websites on the dark web. It all depends on what you’re looking for.
Plz Boss, Can you list some of the sites in Dark web that’s best and legit for mostly Apps purchase etc.
I need to get into a dark web site, I really need some numbers, I have everything else but I need to buy some numbers.
What kind of numbers

Thanks Lexie… I was actually surfing through the net when i saw this whole deep dark web thing, so i decided to get some lil info bout it
How can i access the dark net ?
you can browse dark web by tor. download tor browser and browse dark website.
can we get free vpn, that is good and strong
Remember that old saying godwin? You GET what YOU pay for? Don’t go free with any security! Not antivirus, not email ( Free ones for junk mail are GREAT) and CERTAINLY NOT a vpn! Like someone else mentioned above, vpn’s cost money. A friend of mine got a “great deal” he paid $60 usd for a lifetime. Uhhhhhhh, great deal? No. How can a company continue to upgrade and provide electric, real estate, server upgrades, customer support etc. when, everyone PAYS once for LIFE? Hmmm Then, go the opposite route, free. How secure and how “private” is facebook? After all, it’s “free” right? Long story short, You get exactly what you pay for. Personally, I use a subscription based vpn, the good ones WILL cost you maybe the same as 2 beers at a bar. BUT, again, YOU get what you pay for.
how to opan dark site
Just a few things to note especially for those whom are new to Tor or VPN. First thing first get a VPN before even accessing Tor site to download the browser or even git hub. EVERYBODY in this world that is using the internet should do so via a safe VPN service. There are good solid VPN providers out there USE THEM, ExpressVPN is among the very best and the one I use so take your pick.
Reason for VPN – it hides you as long as it is installed correctly and starts with your computer, meaning it stops the operating system from opening any access sockets/ports when the machine is switched on. Once the VPN client is up and ready it opens and route the traffic leaving the machine.
VPN encrypt your information, so lets use a postal system as an example. Imagine posting a letter in an envelop with coded information/address on the front, first the letter is written and put in the envelop the return/from address is hidden by VPN the envelop is sealed by VPN (titanium style 256 grade), so, when it gets into the shipping/postage line and away it goes, all along the way the sorting office, the postman, the post office and bob the security at the gatehouse checking the van and content has no clue what is in your letter or whom it is coming from or where it’s going – NOTE all the hiding is done via VPN all these other entities see is it is coming form a fake address set via VPN and going to another VPN address. They can’t open it because they haven’t got the key. AT THIS POINT where it leaves the sorting office for its final destination, Tor only traffic, Tor can fail (exit node issue) but if it is in a VPN tunnel (shipping/postage channel) anyone at this stage (snooping around) will see the VPN encrypted data, oh boy will they be pissed off, all that waiting in vain.
To get the world on board we need Firefox to have native support for three or four top
VPN service providers. So all we have to do is pop in a user name and password and away we go forever free and anonymous. (Browsing only) Other non-browser traffic would still be visible over the internet.
Another solution is a VPN Router, Lynksys routers are the best for this and could set you back up to £400 for a top end one.
Finally, always use VPN, get it, install it and ensure it is installed correctly, then Tor or Firefox, avoid Chrome and Chrome base browsers. They are based on google code which I know collects information from users. Trust no company to keep any data for you or about you. If you want to go mad then use QubeOS, VPN, Tor, Firefox, use with USB boot drive and USB storage so there is absolutely nothing on the laptop that could be used to identify you. Keep USB safe and backups hidden, this is for advance users possibly login into remote stealth servers. Standard home users just need VPN and Firefox or possibly Tor if you want to use the Dark Web for legitimate reasons.
Thanks Joshua. Article very very helpful
please i need your help
So you get the VPN first, then Tor ??
I need this app
really a nice articul please canyou help with with onion sites where i can meet online hackers i really want to learn how to hack

How can open dark web ?
Hi Meer, you need to use the Tor Browser to access dark web sites.
how to signup on dark web
Yeah, I only just started checking the “Dark Web” out an like why the hell would you be worried about the legality of being here? Are u kidding me! There r alot of sites that people should worry about on the “Light Web”. It’s people like that who really scare me, because they usually wind up in some high powered position where there there anal approach to things make the rest go friggin crazy. Anyway im sure they can look up Angels, an my little pony crap without fear of being ridiculed by someone like me who just doesn’t get those people. Oops, I was ranting my bad. Lol
Very eddicaed poster !! Studdied alot no dout !!
i like facebook
Never used. Too complex for me. rather simple vpn.
I know there are a lot of good stuff, but I don’t feel safe browsing the darknet
The whole point of the dark net is the fact its way safer than your standard internet. Your more at risk now than if you were using tor. Just don’t get scammed by someone, same as people try to do regularly on normal .com’s. Do some research and you’ll see if you want to feel safe the darknet is where you want to be.
Thanks for finally writing about >9 must-see .onion sites from the depths of the dark
web <Loved it!
I wish to seek more improvements soon.
Nice content will sure head up to look more deep dark below, I use tor for android for VPN since accessing VPN sites are even prohibited in UAE
I tried to acces DuckDuckGo and I got the “No se puede acceder a este sitio. No se encontró la dirección DNS del servidor de 3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion.” errror. Same thing with Facebook. Is this article just old or it is……?
You need the Tor Browser to access onion sites. You can download the Tor Browser here: https://www.torproject.org/
I do not think I’m in a country were it is illegal and was wondering can I get on dark websites with out a vpn or anything
Yes, you do not have to use a VPN to get on the dark net. All you need is the Onion Browser which you can download from its official site here.
So am I able to check out the dark web without running the risk of getting in trouble legally? I’m not looking for anything legal whatsoever but am very curious.
Yes, checking these sites out carries no legal risk. While of course it also depends on what country you are in, it is extremely unlikely that you will get caught just surfing these sites out of curiosity. Use the Tor Browser, it is a powerful anonymity tool!
This list is a bullshit! its just some iditos wannabe to get money from whom people viewing and use the links posted in the blog post! DANG
No, we don’t make money from any of the external links. We just sell VPN subscriptions and love online privacy. We are also supporters of Tor and operate a .onion site ourselves.
I’m honestly surprised you respond to such ignorant people. This comment section hurts my neck, i dont think my heads stopped shaking since i started reading the comments. I appreciate you spreading awareness about the dark net but these people are not its target demographic. The dark net is for intelligent people who want anonymity. Stupidity like the comment you just replied to makes me ok with the fact they’re not using tor. Im not trying to sound arrogant or be arrogant or elitist for that matter but its just sad. It was a good article but most people wont get the point.
hear ya on that
This was a helpful and well written article. Thanks for introducing me to the Matrix!
This article is click bait – sub par.
Sorry you didn’t like it. We think it’s a cool list!
Just curious.. How long have these tor sites and tor browsers been around? I think it’s pretty cool! & your artical is very informative! On another note, not all these sites are bad for example the sci-hub! I love that we can read scientific research. But what are some risks of having a tor browser? & should i have a vpn while using a tor browser? Or is it unnecessary? Its freaking 2017 and im just finding out about this..
Hi! Tor was developed in the mid 1990s by the U.S. Navy, but the project was taken over by the EFF in 2002. We have a cool article about the history of Tor, check it out!
Theoretically your Internet Service Provider (ISP) can detect whether or not you are using Tor, but in most places that is not a problem. If you are worried about it, use a VPN and open the Tor Browser once you are connected. Neither your ISP nor your VPN can see what you are doing in the Tor Browser, and your ISP cannot find out that you are using Tor.
Great article! I was wondering if there are any cool book finder onion sites? I was looking for some math textbooks online (can’t afford them hehe) and couldn’t find them. (for educational purposes of course).
I cannot help you with that! But they say one can find anything on the dark web, even books!
