How To Find Active Onion Sites & Why You Might Want To: I just found out about these this morning via a Reddit AMA. Based on what I read, this is where the worst stuff on the Internet resides.
Onion sites, so named because they end with “.onion”, are hosted as Tor hidden services – a completely anonymous way to host websites. They’re part of the deep Web – an invisible part of the Web that’s not visible to search engines and normal users. It’s full of websites for users obsessed with privacy and anonymity online.
All that stuff you were warned about back in ‘95 when you first logged on? It’s still out there, apparently, you just can’t get to it via “normal” means.
