Darkweb contains websites which have unconventional naming structure. The users should have proper information about the URL and proxy servers before accessing this network. Websites on Darkweb is made complex so that users can’t remember or find it.
Principle of Darkweb:
“The dark web operates on the principle of ‘onion routing’, where anonymity is achieved by rerouting a user’s internet activity on the web. Darkweb routes users through different dispersed IP addresses to veil the traffic coming from a different computer.” The Tor network began as a channel for anonymous communication, and while hackers or cyber criminals do take advantage of this, there are practical reasons for accessing it.
