What is Dark Web? It is the dark web(dark net). You can buy guns, fake money, and assassins. hired hackers and whatever else you can think of over the dark net. You could even buy a lifetime Netflix subscription for a few dollars if you wanted. But that is not all the Dark net is about.
The web is not just the sites you can access using google. In fact, that is just a teeny tiny part of the very large web. But broadly speaking, the web can be divided into 3 main parts which are surface web, deep web, and dark web.
What is the surface web?
The surface web is what most people think the whole web is. It is basically the online content that can be accessed easily using search engines or by links. This can include your favorite blog posts, Facebook pages, and news articles. etc. Which are general information and indexed by search engines like google or bing.
What is Deep Web?
Then we have the deep web, which is distinct from the dark web. This web can not be indexed by search ethe engines and you require some permission to access it. For example, login access to a site, contents of a company database, etc. are not openly available using links on the internet. And since search engines need links to crawl the web, this content is not accessible by them.
What is Dark Web?
And finally, there is the dark net which is not just a place for criminal activity. Like the deep web, the Dark net also can not be accessed using conventional search engines. In fact, you need specific browsers like TOR, which routes the web page requests through multiple proxy servers to provide complete anonymity. And all the dark websites have weird domain addresses and end in the .onion suffix so that they are much harder to track and only accessible by TOR.

How Do The Dark Web Sites Operate?
All of your web page requests on the Dark net are first connected at random to one of the entry nodes. Then bounced off a middle node, and then finally pushed out through an exit node. This makes your IP address unidentifiable and untraceable so you might be sitting in India but you may appear to be in a country halfway around the globe on the Dark Web. This makes TOR perfect to explore the secret dark web but also makes it a little unpredictable and slow due to all the onion layers.
Difference between the dark web and a normal website?
These look the same as any normal website but there are some differences. Instead of ending in “.com or .co or .org” like normal websites, all the dark websites end in “.onion”. This domain suffix ensures that these websites are not accessible normally so you can only reach them using TOR. The hidden WiKi is the dark net Wikipedia which has the address
Is the dark web illegal?
No, the dark web is not illegal. At least not in most countries. However, if you live in china, the great Chinese firewall blocks all the TOR traffic. Also, countries like Russia, Saudi, Arabia, Iran, etc. are also trying to restrict the Dark web as much as possible. But it is a myth that the dark net is only used by criminals for illegal purposes.
So you can legally access TOR and enjoy the secrecy of the dark net (unless you are in china). Although you will have to tolerate the slow speed and random access, the dark net is worth at least a one-time visit. Just make sure to keep your personal details hidden and you should be safe.

How to safe from hackers?
Hackers love to take advantages of unsecured wifi, which can allow easy access to your comapany vital information.

Hackers can also take advantage of employees who are not small about security, employing phishing scams that requests login credentials through email.
