Dark Internet aka Darknet/Deepweb
Most of you out there knows what Internet is and of course you will, after all it is the so called +Era Of Internet ,as you know that on internet there are millions of websites like social media websites ,entertainment websites,business websites and many more but every coin has two sides which are complementary to each other i.e one cannot exist without the other.
Dark Internet also known as Darknet or Deepweb is that untouched part of internet that only a few people knows and have explored if i talk about my personal experience i am still a newbie to this topic but i certainly have explored the darknet/deepweb for the past few months and have enough knowledge to share. now lets have a look on what this darknet really is if you are not new to computers or internet you know that every website or a internet user has a specific IP Address and via that address anyone can be identified as a unique entity on internet. now think of a situation , what if you are completely anonymous to everyone out there? well seems like a good thing at first but when given a good thought , it brings out that this can be used to do illegal things like smuggling , human trafficking , child pornography etc on the internet .
- You will be shocked to know that the surface web i.e the web normal people like you and me uses is just the 7-9% of the total internet out there and the rest 90-93 % is the darknet.
now the question is that how someone can be anonymous on the internet ? and the answer is TOR . so what is this TOR well basically its a web browser that helps you in being anonymous on the internet . TOR i.e The Onion router uses its server in different geographical locations to give you access to the internet via an IP address that is not yours and it gives you an IP address of some other countries like America , Spain or Germany etc.

Now you must be thinking that if TOR is a web browser what is the difference between a normal web browser and TOR web browser ? the answer is that the websites that you can acces on TOR i.e the darknet urls , you cannot access them on simple web browser like chrome or mozilla because the simple websites are like example.com but the darknet urls or i should say the TOR links are like example.onion you can google darknet urls for a bunch of links that can be accessed only via TOR.
- NSA and FBI have banned almost thousands of Darknet Websites that were being used in illegal activities and the famous hacktivist group ANONYMOUS has hacked and brought down bunch of child pornography websites .
- Normal search engines like google or yahoo cannot access darknet only "ahmia search engine" a popular search engine of TOR can access it.
Now the most Important question is why do people use darknet ? as i have already told that people are completely anonymous on the darknet and no rules are imposed or any protocol that is to be followed , the draknet is free from everything unlike the surface web.
mentally disturbed people brutally kill other people on "Red Rooms" i.e a term commonly used on the darknet and it refers to a space where people kill innocent people and even animals and make videos of them and then upload that on darknet on many popular forums or other websites they even do a live video streaming of that killing and charge users a large sum of 1 bitcoin
1 bitcoin is approximately equal to $750 and fluctuates on basis of the traffic generated and many other factors . one should strictly oppose such mentality and the reason why this is popular is because of people like us !! yes we are the ones that pay them such large amount and that too to see a live murder you will be shocked to know that these websites generate large amount to money via these kinds of forums .
