Want to explore the dark web? Here is our list of the best .onion websites in 2021.

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 is by far the largest.

The Tor Network is made up of thousands of servers called relays. When you browse the web using the Tor Browser, your data is not directly passed between your computer and the server. Instead, it is sent randomly between at least three of these relays before it reaches its destination. The data you view might travel around the world multiple times before it reaches you!

This might be inefficient, but it also makes the activity harder to track. Furthermore, your browsing data is encrypted in a way that the relays are not able to see its destination, content or origin simultaneously.

Inside the dark web, 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. This means there are no fees associated with them, and they cannot be easily seized.
