Darknet, Dark Web, Deep Web & Surface Web

The darknet, dark web, deep web, and surface web are a set of online networks that function in a manner different from the World Wide Web or Internet. This article discusses what these terms mean and how they differ from each other.

 

What is Darknet?

The Darknet is a massive, distributed network of interconnected computer systems. The Tor browser allows users to access the darknet by routing their internet traffic through encrypted relays which are randomly located in different countries.

A good chunk of the Darknet is composed of hidden services – websites that can only be accessed with special software, like Tor. Pretty much the entire www is in some way accessible through the dark net, but it has its limitations.

Use of cryptocurrency in the dark net is extremely limited, and if you try to use a bank transfer to make a deposit, it will most likely be declined.

 

What is the Dark Web?

The Dark Web is a subset of the Dark net. The Dark Web is where people go who want to do illegal things online. It only has one purpose, which is to hide from everyone on the surface web that you’re doing illegal things online.

The Tor browser allows users to access the dark web by routing their internet traffic through encrypted relays which are randomly located in different countries.

There are varying degrees of the Dark Web – the clearnet, HTTP:// for normal websites, HTTPS:// for secured websites, The I2P network is a “darknet”, not the “dark web”, which uses its own URL system called Eepsites.

The Deepweb are sites that search engines don’t have full records of, so they can’t search them. The surface web is the internet we all use, and the clearnet is the internet companies like Google and Yahoo use.
