I have used Tor a lot of times and have viewed a lot of “.onion” domains. Here are the list of some of them that may get you started :
- Where Google Doesn’t Go – DuckDuckGo
Your google for browsing the dark web. It gives you much more privacy as search activity isn’t logged by design. It gives decent results without tracking your activities, which leads to question – Are Google’s extensive surveillance techniques really necessary?
- Your Bank – Blockchain for Bitcoins
You will need to spend a bit of money to enjoy the dark web at it’s peak (Beware all, it’s a dangerous place). This wallet helps you keep bitcoins anonymously and is quite secure (even has HTTPS certification)
- The Geek World – Sci-Hub
This website is heaven for all the science lovers and underfunded scientific institutions, as it provides free access to millions of research paper. This is the place which truly aims for Knowledge For All.
- The Wikipedia of Dark Web – Hidden Wiki
This is the place to start if you are new to dark web. This website indexes a wide variety of websites and sources running on the dark web. A lot of them are spams and also illegal, so beware.
- Yes Facebook is here – The real Facebook
I really don’t know the reason behind the presence of facebook’s onion URL. It’s quite possible that facebook wants to be accessible to its users where it’s censored. (Beware! This could be a phising site. Hackers use phising sites which look like familiar websites. Once you login with your id, you do get directed to facebook, but at the back your login id and password is mailed to the hacker, making you and your account vulnerable.)
- Our Own Mailing System – Tor Mail
This is a secure email client used by a lot of people for asking questions, contacting others etc.
- The Address Book – TorLinks
TorLinks is the other robust and usually accessible collection of .onion addresses.
- Host Your Own onion Domain – Freedom Hosting
It supports a large part of onion-net, and you can use it to host anything in dark web anonymously. But you can’t host stuffs that are illegal under American law.
Dark web is a good place full of information and people having different ideas. What is great about it is that it really gives a chance to websites that are banned due to their free thinking – Wikileaks.
