Dark Web Sites Links

What Are Dark Web Links?

dark web links
What Are Dark Web Links?

Dark Web Links are .onion domains on the Tor network, .onion domains are hosted as a Tor hidden service.

You can browse to Dark Web Links with the Torbrowser, or Onion Browser on the Iphone.

So if you are wondering how to access the dark web, all you need is the links on this site and a dark web browser.

There are the old style .onion hidden service links, and now also the new version 3 links which are much longer. But both are working the same way.

Just browse to DarkWeb.Link with your Torbrowser to access the dark web. And check our Blog for more articles about dark web sites and their links.


When did the Dark Web “start”?

The history of the anonymous web is almost as old as the present history of the Internet. We did not find any official record of the actual “start date”, but we believe that the Dark Web that we know today began with the release of Free net in 2000 .


Download and Install Tor Browser

Download and Install Tor Browser

Despite its current use as a browser that is often used to access parts of the Dark Web, TOR (aka. Dark web browser) was originally developed to help protect US intelligence online communications .

Today, this witch is one of the few ways to access onion websites located on the web.

TOR is a modern version of the famous Firefox web browser, wisely modified to allow users to browse the web world anonymously. Browsers are designed to block or advise user efforts to do things that may reveal their identity, such as resizing the dimensions of a browser window, for example.

DARK WEB: – A COMPREHENSIVE ARTICLE ON HOW TO USE

Dark Web

Dark web has been a fascinating little entertainment for multitudes. The way it protected a class of people will surely attract masses. The wordings dark web and Tor have been interchanged in many fields. Weill, this article will be an eye opener on who benefits from TOR. Numerous infamous incidents have tarnished the glamorous outfit of black web. However, no matter how hard authorities try to defame it, the interesting aspect of dark web will always captivate it. Dark web doesn’t facilitate any crime. TOR volunteers have been supportive to any assistance required for solving criminal cases. The unearthing of Silk Road was an example. During recent conventions, the authorities have made it clear that TOR networks facilitate only anonymous traffic and nothing more. It is the user who shall be held captive for wrong doings. The ease of doing business in TOR has certainly allured many criminals to it. Be it services or delivery of banned goods, TOR assists them due to its privacy first attitude. Also, the advancement of cryptocurrencies has also boosted activities.


TRACKING ACTIVITIES IN DARK WEB

TRACKING ACTIVITIES IN DARK WEB

The introduction of better tools and sophisticated techniques has assisted law enforcement agencies. It is possible to analyze packets and end users with time and effort. Even after repeated attempts to bring down several child pornographies sites, there has been little luck. The lack of advancement is due to much better tricks that marketplaces opt to evade themselves. Now, it is even harder to track any malicious activities. But thanks to progression in technology, the same is made possible. Last year, few attempts to bring down marketplaces selling illegal goods were successful. TOR has been in the comfort zone for many years now. But the future of TOR is unpredictable. Whether it is about a new technology promising more anonymity or it’s just a revamp, we have to wait and see. TOR, as of now has a strong user base even though it has only 3 percent of market share. Furthermore, events leading to disgraceful incidents are also on the rise in TOR. Lately, federal authorities are tracing more and more e-commerce platforms in the dark net. If the situation continues, more sellers will be forced to leave TOR networks. Dark web links are also unstable as of now.


WHY USERS OPT FOR DARK WEB SERVICES

WHY USERS OPT FOR DARK WEB SERVICES

As an investigator or a casual user with investigative mind, what makes a person allured into dark web? The answer has a choice from a wide spectrum. It isn’t anyone’s choice to always opt for dark web. Some of them do it with an intention to purchase illicit goods. Some sell items and benefit from anonymity. Some are there to just take a glance of what exactly is happening. Most important of all, there are the web administrators. Websites that are up and running cannot carry out all tasks automatically. There has to be a point where manual intervention is required. Here comes the real culprit. It cannot be construed as an excellent option to hide beneath TOR networks. Illicit trade has boomed over the past few times. Again, all the web links available in dark web aren’t illegal. Interesting web pages coupled with tons of entertaining social media sites are also available. The question again is, then why does dark web feel so dark? For an answer, we will have to drive back areas.

DARK WEB FROM THE BEGINNING

dark web links
DARK WEB FROM THE BEGINNING

Dark web was young when it surfaced as a measure to contain eavesdropping and to finally secure data. The Naval Research Laboratory funded by the US developed TOR network, what is lovingly termed as dark web nowadays. The achievement was sort of rebellious with no other alternative for internet back then. Later, several changes came to the tor project and it was publicly supported not as a governmental project but as a common one. One of the main aims off pushing such a project to existence was to secure data. Information was vital and any steps to prevent siphoning it were termed awesome. Then came the advent of advanced technical developments. Dark web found it hard to sustain itself from the very small funds. The project had a small but like-minded volunteer group compared to surface web. Websites started to grow and evolve. User groups were also enjoying the various .onion extensions they had. During the leaning phase, somewhere, the purpose of tor was overlooked. Dark web marketplaces hosting illegal content and illicit trades became regular. The rest is history.

AN UNDERSTANDING OF DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DARK WEB AND SURFACE WEB

AN UNDERSTANDING OF DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DARK WEB AND SURFACE WEB

It is better to have a brief understanding of its operation and terminology before you jump into conclusion on what exactly the dark web offers. Over the historical eras, the dark web has advanced, cheering for an extensive operator base. In the minds of netizens, crazy tales about services accessible through dark web links have generated suspicion. Facilities here are said to be available, including that of a hitman. In one step, for illustration, the site called Besa Mafia had its being. But instead of offering a hitman’s services as promised, the site was a mere phishing attempt on its users’ personal details and financial assets. Surface web has more content that can be tracked. This assists enforcement authorities to have a clear picture. Dark web on the other hand is a maze of criminal activities. It is hard to track and much harder to convict anyone makes it a safe haven. That is what dark web is.

TIPS TO STAY SAFE IN DARK WEB

Newer methodologies coupled with prompt penalties have suppressed marketplace owners. However, dark web is growing. Ups and downs of dark web were time tested and still the whole system is evolving. Newer domains will surely replace existing concepts to bring dark web live. The current scenario is that security in dark web is purely the visitor’s bane. There is no pre written script to save you. If known facts will save someone from enforcement authorities then one useful tip is to stay away from illegal markets. You will almost always end up in hand cuffs. A steel stomach may not always save a dark web user from the wrath of scammers. Plenty of excuses can be found to access dark web. Whatever demanding the situation is, it is always a risk to skim the pages of dark net.

Once any relevant information is received, TOR access can be easily shut and the data thus saved can be removed for future purpose. During the uptime in TOR, personal data should not be shared anywhere. There shouldn’t be any active instances of JavaScript activation as well. Once a data breach has occurred, there isn’t much time for a backup. Solutions should be prompt and spot on. Without a doubt, the plan of disconnecting network computers should be processed.

GOVERNMENTS AND DARK WEB

The regulation of internet laws and corresponding censorship were topics of debate during the past few years. Technical advancement has really concerned governments. There are wireless portals where dark web is free to explore. We live in a complex world with much technical know-how still confusing for the masses. The laws are ever changing and dark web seems to violate the basic laws at times. Enacting strict policies will surely bring more discipline to internet. Dark web is a relevant portion of internet. It needs studies and researches before banning a service. Also, certain countries have more versatile laws for internet freedom. Some have been rigid causing uprisings and concerns. Dark web cannot be blasted all of a sudden. Tracking servers and bringing them down requires patience and support of relays of dark web itself. Presently the laws of many developed countries are not adequate to track and bring illegal websites down. Therefore, it is inevitable to discipline the laws regulating internet usage first. Dark web markets aid in boosting banned drug sale also. Stringent measures including prison terms need to be imposed to bring such activities down.

Even officials of government organizations rely on dark web for disseminating information safely. The entry of internet groups involved in various countries have brought forward requirement of new laws. The present scenario is complicated. The laws need to be enacted in such a way that a dark web user in another country needs to avail the protection. Actions that are prohibited by law in a country will be allowed in another. Thus, regulating international actions need to have a common consensus. This requires framing of international laws for regulating internet freedom. The scope of this work is complex and beyond comparison due to freedom that citizens of few countries enjoy.

Many experts have criticized the existence of Tor in the present scenario. The situation won’t change for at least a decade. There has to be a monitoring mechanism to track down illicit websites. Several renowned security researchers have found out that when hackers access data, the same password can cause harm. In addition to brute force tactics, hackers of the new generation install remote scripts to try to log key data. As per their results, in some cases, a successful password could not be the best. The use of the same password for banking websites and online games is also very significant. The way data is distributed is one of the helpful characteristics of the dark web. Despite the architecture and connection stability of the 19th century raising many eyebrows, many lovingly enjoy TOR networks.

VIRTUALIZATION AND DARK WEB

A Tor browser running like a virtualized one in an isolated environment is comparably safer. This is not always the case, although enthusiasts say that the VM layer of the 5-layer onion protection is optional. Digital computers do not provide any options for safer surfing. VM exploits can be omitted if they are built in this way. But note that each and every protection layer helps to stay away from bad coders. Most advanced users advocate removing VPN services in order to reduce delays and improve flexibility. If you want to trade in the dark sector, then this is probably the way to go. Foolproof support is provided by VPN providers. A computer without VPN security is likely to be compromised in the case of an infection from the dark web. This will also show that their actual IP address will peel other layers of security away. If a VPN is enabled, human errors when accessing dark web links can be significantly reduced. As detailed in previous papers, our prescribed 5-layer protection offers improved security. Without worrying about phishing attempts, users can easily access dark web content. It should be noted, however, that any transaction made or an attempt to transact via credit/debit cards should be done very carefully.
