Difference Between Surface Web, Deep Web And Dark Web.

  • Surface Web: The sites which are visible for every Internet users and indexed on search engines like Google. Means sites like Google, Facebook, Twitter are on surface web. Even this site is on surface web because you found this site on social media or on Google and you’re simply browsing it.
  • Deep Web: The sites which aren’t indexed on any search engine. These sites are made up for yse of very few people and to store very important data. Deep web sites are mostly encrypted and password protected. Mostly, sites in deep web are of government’s, medical and secret Intelligents agencies CIA & RAW and other personal sites where they store their very important and private data and share with selected people.
  • Dark Web: Dark Web’s sites have .onion domain and to access any dark web’s site, you will need a special software called Tor (The Onion Router). There are rumours in the social media that even accessing dark web is illegal but its completely false. But its true that dark web is completely unsecured. You must use VPN while accessing VPN. However, even with VPN you aren’t completely secured. As its name ‘Dark Web’, its really dark part of Internet network. Because you can browse anonymously on dark web, there is too much freedom. Mostly dark web sites are made for illegal activities like hiring a hitman, selling drugs, terrorist activities, human experiments, child porn and many more serious illegal activities done in dark web. Last year when instagram’s 6 million account were hacked, the details of hacked accounts was being sold on dark web.  Usually, everything on dark web is paid and payments are made by Bitcoins but note that dark web also full of spammers so don’t make any payment.

[Must Note] Never search for any illegal stuff on dark web because CIA always in search of criminals on dark web.
