Dark Web Search Engine

What is the Dark Web?

The dark web is a tiny fraction of the web that is not indexed by search engines like google. It is only accessible through special protocols such as Tor and usually accessed with a web browser.  The term “dark web” is also known as the dark net and sometimes confused with the term deep web. Individual Tor nodes on the tor network create the darknet and anonymize communications inside the dark web.

Tor anonymizes communications and hides the origin and destination of the Internet Traffic. The network stays anonymous because each intermediary knows only the location of the immediately preceding and following nodes. Tor provides anonymity to websites and other servers. Each server or website on Tor is a hidden service. The hidden service does not have an IP address. A hidden service has an onion address that can be accessed through a Tor Browser.
