With Tor installed, you can access .onion domains such as the Hidden Wiki (which tells you a little about this realm), setup hosting with freedom hosting, create a blog at blog.masked or visit the Tor directory to see what other services are available.There are no laws here and you are free to publish anything and everything and nobody will even be able to identify you, much less stop you. You can configure hidden services for tor by clicking setup, then services and clicking the add (+) (see diagram below).Simply run your favourite server, whether this is Apache, IIS or whatever then on this menu screen point Tor at localhost / 127.0.0.1 (in this case we are using it for http / web so we choose port 80).
As you can imagine, you will find all manner of unsavory things on the dark side of the Internet (it hit the news recently, when U. senators realised that websites openly sold drugs), but it is also used for a tremendous amount of good.It is a place where the people may gather, out of sight and even further out of reach.I urge you to see this as the Wild West, or Tokyo before the Edo period; wild and untamed but full of possibilities!What if I said there was Internet beyond what you can normally ’see’?Like dark matter, or the memory of a half-remembered dream, it lies just outside of perception, hidden beneath the sea of information.
It is estimated that the Dark Web is several orders of magnitude it?
There are many different techniques in use, but Tor’s onion router network is probably the easiest one to get started with.
The .onion domains are not part of the ICANN registry, and will not resolve until you are running Tor (download it here).
Because of the way Tor routing works, both the host serving out web pages and the requesting client are obscured and are not easily identifiable in the twilight (see these diagrams for full explanation).
The combined effect leaves this form of Internet far beyond any kind of government control or regulation.
You only need to click the ‘new identity’ button and Tor will pick a new node to make requests through – which will seem to give you a new IP address and a completely new identity even for regular Internet (see below).
