Understanding the Darknet People are often perplexed about what really the darknet is. First of all, it can be confused with the deep web, that part of the Internet which cannot be reached by search engines. According to experts, the deep web is hundreds of times bigger than the surface web (the Internet the public generally uses). The dark web (or dark net) composes a small percentage of the deep web. Its contents could not be found by the search engines, but beyond that, it is called the anonymous Internet. Within the dark net, website publishers as well as web surfers are totally anonymous. Large government agencies may be able to track people’s movements in this anonymous space, but the process is often immensely difficult, calls for a tremendous amount of resources, and isn’t always productive. Access to the hidden Internet, on the other hand, is astoundingly easy. Using a service called Tor (or TOR), an acronym for The Onion Router, is the most common way to do. While technically savvy users can find tons of ways to configure and use Tor, it can also be as easy as installing a new browser. The Tor browser even works for surfing the surface web anonymously, offering the user additional protection against threats, such as corporate data theft, government spying, hacking, and the rest. It also enables you visit websites that are published anonymously on the Tor network, which are inaccessible to anyone not using Tor. This is undoubtedly one of the largest and most popular areas of the darknet. Tor website addresses look different from typical URLs in that they are composed of random-looking character strings and are followed by .onion.

Another privacy network termed I2P (the Invisible Internet Project) has grown in popularity recently. Tor has remained very popular, but there also seems to be a shift towards I2P, where users get such improvements as integrated secure email and file storage/sharing plug-ins, as well as integrated social features like blogging and chat. For extra protection, Tor users also like to use a virtual private network, or VPN. No one will be able to see what you are doing exactly with your onion router, but surveillance entities would know that you are on Tor to do something. In 2014, there was talk that the NSA was tagging Tor users as extremists or persons of interest. While that could be a very long list without any evidence of what will be done with it, it is something everyone would like to avoid. When a VPN is used to connect to Tor, this problem automatically ceases to exist because then, nobody would even know that the person is using Tor.Where To Start with Markets and More
