Guide: How to find the darknet or deepweb

Visit the front pageVisit your profilePublish a blog post

The Darknet or Deepweb is a collection of un-indexed domains that are not being indexed by search engines. An estimation from 2011 reported that there is over 600 terabytes of data on the Darknet.

The Darknet is used by activists, journalists, military & law enforcement and by people like you and me. The other side of the Darknet is that there are also people that perform illegal activities there. Scams and hoaxes can be found there and illegal pornographic forums are alive there too.

There are a lot of traps in the Darknet. Be careful when you walk in the shadow.

Onion websites on the Darknet

Any website that ends in ".onion",are hosted as Tor hidden services – a completely anonymous way to host websites. They’re part of the Darknet – an invisible part of the Web that’s not visible to search engines and normal users. It’s full of websites for users obsessed with privacy and anonymity online.

How to find .onion domains

The first thing you will need is a client that will allow you to access the .onion domains. The client you will need is named TOR. This program will allow you to view pages on the Darknet. TOR also provides an extra layer of security as it works as an anonymizer that helps to keep you hidden. 

Follow the instructions provided by the TOR service to install the TOR program correctly. 

Download the Tor client here from the official website.

Go to the Core onion entry point 

One of the famous page on the Darknet is the Core.onion page. This page has served as an entry-point to the .ion network since July, 2007. 

The Core.onion page can be found here: 


Talk .onion
This is the onion main forum



Tor Status

Duck D​uck Go 
Search Engine

Hush Box
Message sharing platform

The follow step in the Darknet is to find the Hidden Wiki

The Hidden Wiki is an index of all kinds of various pages. The last time (2012) Cyberwarzone reported on the Hidden Wiki we showed how the people on the Darknet sell weapons and how close everything is when you start thinking about it. 

The Hidden Wiki 2013

The Hidden Wiki can be found in the Darknet, the hidden wiki serves as an index page that allows visitors to navigate through the Darknet. There are a lot of services that might be very interesting to click on, but do remember that there are also a lot of traps on the Darknet.

The Hidden Wiki can be found here:
