What is the Deep Dark Web?
Before going on we need to distinct between deep and dark web.
They are not the same.
And wonder what their use is in real worlds.
Some definitions first
The surface web is the web we use daily, crawled and indexed by search engines.
The deep web is hidden, not part of the surface web.
In fact, it gathers all the pages not indexed by search engines
- Website under construction
- Archives no longer indexed
- Unlinked content (without back links)
(A back link is when you put a link to another website on your website.)
In other words, any type of content is found on the deep web.
As such the deep web is not legal and not accessible. Some activities are legal however.
Deep web is a huge library with lots of books and information
The deep web is not the dark web.
The dark web is the bad deep web. Do not get lost there.
It is only a small part of deep web.
Search is not indexed on the deep web… it can not be googled… nor searched.
There are other marketplaces than on the surface web, legal and illegal ones.
The difference is there is no indexation.
The deep web needs special software to access it (like TOR).
All pages are .onion formats, unable to access on regular search engines.
The type of information are encrypted documents, legal anonymous market places and also complete illegal networks… You need specific URL to access the information.
On the deep web everything is anonymous, the dark web is only a small part of the internet
How to use Deep web for legal and good purposes
The deep web has a lot of interesting not indexed stuff by google and search engines
How to use them for legal purpose.
The basics of the deep web is anonymous surfing.
People want privacy whilst browsing without being traced.
On the deep web, you are not tracked.
And have access to all kind of stuff.
It also gives access to censored content by countries.
It gives insight in what governments want to hide or suppress
As such the deep web gathers massive information of libraries and books from all countries...
Most information is on the deep web (95%) … good and bad… just know how to look for your information without censorship. Filter your information, scientific, history, library and books of all kind… to find what you are looking for.
True/false statements about the deep web

- Deep web is illegal. No… as such deep web is not illegal, the stuff or services can be.
- Deep web is anonymous browsing by using the appropriate software to access it. Yes, but… you can still be tracked
- Deep web is used by Mafia… Not really if you know how to consult it and are searching information no longer on the surface web. People on surface web will be more attacked…
- Deep web is hard to access. No. What is hard is searching and finding the right sites, browsing the good part of the deep web and avoiding the bad dark ones
Browsers, security, navigation, anonymous navigation, some basics
To access the deep web, you need a search engine like TOR or special software like TRAIL. Both are open source projects where everybody can contribute, enabling anonymous communication. There are others… just naming the most known.
TOR browser works on the .onion network. It sends a request to the servers concerned and hides your IP address.
TOR focuses on anonymously. It is not illegal to use it. TOR security uses data encryption to protect your anonymity and works like an onion, with several layers
Just know, all can be traced, even on TOR browser.
Be careful when using plugins.
Do not download them… no need to add to TOR, it is complete on its own.
Close all your apps connected to internet before using TOR.
Do not maximize the size of your window. Leave it as is
Never download docs or movies on the deep web. Virus and malware all around.
Do not open mails or attachments on mail from TOR either.
Do not play around on the deep web, just visit what you know.
Do not make your searches on the deep web!
