The Deep Web

There is a place in this world where you can be free... Where you can speak your mind and there be no consequences. Where you can buy whatever, sell whatever and use whatever you want in an untraceable currency through unstoppable channels. It sounds great, right? Well... it can be. But not always. But where is the place?

The Internet. But not the World Wide Web you are familiar with. The portal you use (most probably Google) only searches through indexed websites. And while this opens you up to a wealth of information, over 1,000 years of video footage and 20% of all of Earth's information- it isn't what the web is totally made up of. There is another side to the web, of unindexed and unorganised pages- with a mix of millions of hyperlinks that spring you to different sites; doing just about anything you can imagine. It is... The Deep Web.


The Deep Web: The Dark Side of the Internet 


What is it?
Do not get the words 'Internet' and 'Web' confused. While you may think they are interchangeable, they are not. The Internet is a network of networks (LANs and WANs)- that links computers, phones and all manner of devices together. The World Wide Web is an application of the Internet. Other applications include E-mail, File Transfer etc. Protocols of the Internet include Hypertext Transfer (HTTP), File Transfer (FTP), Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) etc. But what we are specifically focusing on is the World Wide Web, specifically the non-indexed side of it.

What do I mean by 'Non-indexed sites'?
Sites are indexed by Google through a number of factors. Mainly things called 'Robots' but we won't go into that. 'Indexed' sites are just websites that Google can see. Also browsers cannot get onto these non-indexed sites due to their protection level or structure. You need to use a special browser (Tor is the main one) to access these sites. The Deep Web is just a collection of invisible pages- thus why phrases are coined such as 'The Invisible Web', 'The Hidden Internet' and 'The Dark Web'.

How do you access the Deep Web?
Accessing the Deep Web is something you should do lightly. Even a little peek onto a website can land you in very deep trouble. Be it through stumbling onto a site that could earn viewers federal prison time, landing on a site with something that deanonymises your location to some very bad people, or even being unwittingly picked up by a Spider algorithm that will harvest your details and put them on a database for some very dangerous people to view. But if you are still wanting to access then here is how:


Method 1) Tor Browser (For extensive use, anonymity or transactions and / or service use)
1) Download the Tor browser from https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en, the Tor browser is a browser that anonymises you online by hosting your requests and IP number on one of about 6,000 servers run by volunteers around the world. 
NOTE: THIS DOES NOT MAKE YOU ENTIRELY ANONYMOUS. Hackers, algorithms and government computers can still access your name and address within a number of minutes on standalone Tor anonymity.

2) Go to http://kpvz7ki2v5agwt35.onion/wiki/index.php/Main_Page. This is a matrix of hyperlinks to useful or interesting sites. Be careful though, these sites can be dangerous. And also do not follow a hyperlink from an individual on a forum as they can be tricking you. Only follow links from sites you really trust- if it is possible to trust someone on the Deep Web.

That's it really! Get ready to go into the huge abyss that is the Deep Web!


Method 2) Using a normal browser but substituting the extension for a converter link (Dangerous, risky and temperamental)
1) Find the link of the Deep Web site you wish to access.
2) Substitute the .onion link with .tor2web.org and accept their terms and conditions
3) Be VERY careful.

NOTE: This is extremely dangerous. Anyone wanting to harvest your personal details (very personal details in some cases) can do it very easily. This isn't necessarily your address- this could even hack your hardware including your webcam to take your picture- and there are a whole host of abusive, ID theft, criminal and such other sites that are dedicated to spamming, ripping off and in some cases destroying the person they locate.

What is on the Deep Web?
Well, you asked. Get ready for this. The Deep Web contains a whole host of dark, dangerous and diabolical things. The most well-known atrocity is gruesome child abuse, with images, videos, audio recordings and even live streams of terrible things happening to children, young adults and even infants and newborns.

The Deep Web can be used for some useful things, however. Your month's supply of weed, legal highs or alcohol can be bought at a competitive price. And one thing I wanted to use the Deep Web for once was to find exam papers that I was due to sit- however this is a niche service which is only really plausible in the US where most of the Deep Web activity occurs. You can find some cool stuff at low prices- but beware that if you find, say, a Rolex watch for the equivalent of around £200; you are probably buying a stolen Rolex. You can buy fake branded clothes too, which I thought was pretty cool.




Of course; your everyday dodgy services such as streaming, torrenting and gambling can be found in spades on the Deep Web- and this may appeal to you if you'd like to keep that extra layer of caution. However, torrenting is something best left alone on the Deep Web as it is much easier to contract bad viruses and malware; and the Tor browser is not designed for torrenting and the whole network slows down.

You literally have a bit of everything on the Deep Web. Demon worshipping sites are not as frequent as other dark stuff but it is not unheard of. There is one site where you can select your demon from a list you'd like to worship and watch videos, chat with the person behind the site and buy Satanic decorations etc. However don't think that is all what the Deep Web has to offer in terms of demonic rituals- I'm sure you could find grotesque images of human sacrifice because basically everything on the Deep Web has some element of suffering.

Like animals? Be careful, there are large and popular sites dedicated to animal cruelty, abuse, torture, murder and even bestiality. Most of these animals are alive and their torture is dragged out over a very long period of time. There is also archives of CCTV footage of animals starving to death, being abandoned or being run over. You do wonder what kinds of people what get such a kick.

The last thing I'll warn you about on the Deep Web is human experimentation. This is the most sadistic, cruel and pointless thing I have ever come across on the Deep Web to date. The most popular site 'The Human Experiment'; claimed to operate in four warehouses- abducting homeless people and putting them through Hell. Everything from bleach resistance, X-Ray exposure, sexual torture, dismemberment and ice water submerging to suffocating, drug trials, bone breaking and electric torture. Rumours about some sites claim there are infant sections, while others claim these people do live streams with a 'Pay for Pain' feature that users can utilise- to increase the torture severity on victims. This is not stuff to be taken lightly- and you almost always never reach these places intentionally.

So...
The Deep Web is literally the closest thing humanity has created to infinity. With estimations ranging from 50-500,000,000,000 pages on this hidden Internet, you truly never know what you will find. You may choose to go from here with a game plan- to know what to find. But believe me, as soon as you enter you are logged by thousands of different people and websites forever- there is no going back. You will most likely go on a random trail of hyperlinks if you are just browsing. Hyperlinks are like doors on the Deep Web; and you never know what is behind the next one.

However you choose to act, I am not responsible for any malware you contract, legal trouble you incur or harm that comes to you and your family. I have warned you about the dangers of the Deep Web, there are some dangerous people in this world. It is your choice if you want to enter the maze.
