Must-See Onion Sites? Request from ExpressVPN

The makers of ExpressVPN contacted me via email and asked if I would share a link to their article 9 must-see .onion sites from the depths of the dark web. Very well, there you go! The article also mentions that ExpressVPN has their own Tor hidden service: http://expressobutiolem.onion/ (I should probably do that at some point.)

expressvpn

While I appreciate that they reached out to me, I read the article, and I somewhat disagree that these are the “best” onion sites on the dark web. Why?

Well, first of all, most of them have clearnet mirrors. If you’re looking for sites that are unusual or different from what’s available on the clearnet, then these aren’t necessarily what people have in mind.

For instance, one of the sites they list is http://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/ (DuckDuckGo), which is also on the clearnet at https://duckduckgo.com. Another example is http://blockchainbdgpzk.onion/, which is also on the clearnet at https://blockchain.info/.

blockchain-info

There are many other sites like this as well, such as Beneath VT (http://74ypjqjwf6oejmax.onion/), which you can find on the clearnet at http://beneathvt.com.

beneathvt

To give ExpressVPN the benefit of the doubt, I will say that sites like these are a good “introduction” to Tor, because they are relatively harmless and won’t take advantage of you.

You’ve probably been told not to just click on random onion links, because you never know what you’ll come across, and that’s true. I have had the experience of clicking on some unlabeled link, and being horrified at what I “discovered.”

In my opinion, the “must see” onion sites are the puzzle ones (like Red Triangle), or perhaps some of the social or tech-related ones. Of course, that’s the kind of thing I’m into, so it makes sense.

Of course, you could just head “into the jungle” yourself, so to speak, and see what you uncover.

By the way, if anyone wants me to feature their site, feel free to suggest it! I might want some bitcoin in exchange, though. (wink)

Updated Dark Web Links for 2018

Good morning, and happy Sunday, my fellow dark web explorers! I’ve mentioned before that people often ask me for dark web links of all kinds. Often, I find that what they’re looking for doesn’t exist, however.

You may find this ironic, but in spite of having been on Tor for over two years, I still enjoy listening to the “dark web horror stories” on YouTube and elsewhere, like this one: [Deep Web Story] Feeding/Breathing/Suffocation – ReignBot. I just like horror; what can I say?

reignbot_deepwebstory_edited

Anyhow, here are some actual Tor links I’ve come across recently (that were working the last time I checked):

http://rt22ev5lmmtz2wfc.onion/ – Mr. Alien

http://apollionih4ocqyd.onion/login.php – Apollon Market (not sure if this is trustworthy)

http://monajruhsdcl6hdl.onion/ – Mona Social Network (I’ll do a future post on this.)

http://slagsguyzipktofx.onion – Slags (porn site, but it’s legal. Go figure!)

http://3cuarxyaxke2hmlk.onion – Poopak Search Engine (haven’t tried this one yet)

http://oenlhv5fqwl5vace.onion – Blackout (hacking forum)

http://ss7acc7br2hej43p.onion/login – SS7 Portal

hzionerlko3on77m.onion – Hill of Zion (not sure what this is, but looks like a forum)

Perhaps that can get you started. I’ll find some more interesting links and post them in the future, when I get a chance.

“Secret” Dark Web Links?

People often ask me if there are “secret” or “hidden” dark web links that aren’t available on the public link lists. In fact, someone did so yesterday, which was what prompted this post.

To be honest, I think this is one of the many myths about the dark web; people explore the few links that are on The Hidden Wiki (or similar link lists), find them boring, and then ask, “Where’s the real interesting stuff?”

Well, as I mentioned on All Onion Services: New URL, if it isn’t on that site (with regard to Tor at least), it isn’t anywhere. Not only does that site have v1 onions, but also v2 and v3 (the ones with 50 characters).allonionsv2_edited

Of course, finding actual onions that are online when using All Onion Services can be quite difficult, as none of them are labeled or sorted into categories. Yet, as I’ve also mentioned on quite a few other blog posts, there are many link lists and search engines on Tor.

While these may not index everything, I’ve managed to find some interesting sites through these methods. In past posts, I have referenced several other link lists, which I still use to this day. I’ll include those here, plus a few that I just came across:

http://jdpskjmgy6kk4urv.onion – Welcome to Dark Web Links and More!

darkweblinks&more

http://darkdirmpmoq3uur.onion – DarkDir

http://zlal32teyptf4tvi.onion – Fresh Onions

freshonions

http://xvwhmrw3sgwwmkko.onion – Atlayo Search Engine

http://5jgis47vdcpaeafp.onion – La Wiki Oculta (for my Spanish readers!)

http://deeplinkdeatbml7.onion – DeepLink

In addition to these, there are the various search engines, such as the following:

http://hss3uro2hsxfogfq.onion – not Evil

notevil_edited

http://visitoroymk3ouq7.onion/search – VisiTOR

http://gjobqjj7wyczbqie.onion/ – Candle

candle_search_edited

http://msydqstlz2kzerdg.onion/ – Ahmia (also at http://ahmia.fi)

ahmia

http://bznjtqphs2lp4xdd.onion – Welcome to Dark Web Links Search Engine

welcome2darkweb_edited

These are just a few examples, but my feeling is that if you can’t find what you’re looking for on one of these link lists or search engines, it probably isn’t there. If you’re looking for something besides Tor, try I2P or Freenet.

Here are a few I2P links:

http://0thers.i2p

http://abhishek.i2p

http://closedshop.i2p

http://cokeandcoffee.i2p

http://darkhardwarelab.i2p

There are many others, but that’s what I could find at the moment.

Every so often, I do come across sites I haven’t seen before, but the content on them tends to be about the same: marketplaces, forums, fraud sites, scams, wikis, and the occasional game site or weird site.

Other than that, if you’re just looking for sick content (that doesn’t involve children), it’s probably on the clearnet – contrary to popular belief.

If there’s something I missed here, feel free to tell me, but I think that about covers it.

 

 

 

Exploring Tor Links Again, Just For You!

Based on the comments I get, I’ve become aware of how much people love to see so-called “dark web links” on here. For that reason, I’ve done a little exploration and found some new ones.

Note to my readers: if you have requests for certain types of links, let me know. I can try to find some, but I can’t guarantee that I’ll come across the ones that you want. Honestly, some of the things that people are looking for (in my experience) just don’t exist.

http://mdn47pmcst65jblo.onion/ – Dark City IRC

dr47oldcaubn7ukf.onion – Level 7 Galaxy

http://gtp5d6nojrgqivle.onion/ – Game Console (requires JavaScript – may not be a good idea to use with Tor)

http://n44ppdgvmnrckhvh.onion/ – apollyon (requires password; might be members-only)

http://s6sykeumpavhsveg.onion/ – IniziCraft (some kind of coding community)

http://tpbom7barowq2c2u.onion/shop/tpb – Каталог – The Pirate Bay

Well OK, there’s my teaser – what other kinds of links do you want?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Give Me Links, Man! L-I-N-K-S!

darkdir_links

When I was on IRC (which I haven’t been for awhile), one of the things that would happen constantly is that people would pop in and ask for onion links all the time. I’m sure that got annoying.

So, because this is such a popular request, I’m going to give you some right now. How’s that? Just be careful – I’m serious.

http://sextzym44iqnjt6v.onion/ – WE are Technical Shadow

http://wikilink77h7lrbi.onion/ – Wiki Link Hidden – Tor .onion URL directory

http://wikilink77h7lrbi.onion/ – Bl@CKn3T

http://executrerbwdkddn.onion/ – Executioner

http://mbrsonlymdkaxfmx.onion/ – Members Only Marketplace

http://nfcnsecaoxyvtfae.onion/ – 96CNSEC

http://kp72b24qdzp5yruk.onion/ – The Switch

http://psmz2pmzjjuhmqmh.onion/ – Sh4do3

http://q6mjh37unod6kvaa.onion/network.onion – Gma1 – social network?

http://hackerc6bovxwqmi.onion/ – Hacker for Hire

http://creepymhpgibsewr.onion/ – Creepy

http://eoro24hiqmf6ig5u.onion/ – Secret Society

Alright – is that enough to get you started? Have fun, and perhaps I’ll post more links later on, if I come across them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Flare: A Beta Tor Search Engine

flare_search_engine

Those of you who love “links, links, links!” will be happy to know that there’s a very new search engine on Tor called Flare, which looks similar to Candle, another search engine. It’s at this URL: http://dlggj2krbqzm5dru.onion. Honestly, this was the first thing I pictured when I heard the name:

flare surf

Anyhow, Candle, as I mentioned on a previous post, is one of several search engines that indexes Tor hidden services. It’s not quite as popular as not Evil or Grams [EDIT: Grams no longer exists], but it gets the job done.

Candle_Tor

Flare, in turn, is very similar (in fact it may even be a fork), but because it’s in beta form, it still needs help with its algorithms and speed. One interesting (and somewhat disturbing) feature that it has, at present, is that it lists some previous searches done by other users to the right of the search results.

Being aware that a lot of people on the dark web are looking for CP, you can guess what kinds of search terms may show up there. Well, it’s Tor – what did I expect? I just wouldn’t want to meet any of these people in person.

Anyhow, the more that you use a particular search term, the faster it will come up in the future. I tried out the following searches:

“red room”

“hacking”

“dark”

“market”

“carding”

I believe I tried a few others too, but I don’t recall. Compared to a search engine like not Evil, it doesn’t get as many results, but like Candle, Flare seems more focused on getting relevant results, rather than the largest number.

Interestingly, out of the search terms above, “market” returned the most results, by far. Should I really be surprised by that? The first result was a site called “Counterfeit USD,” at this link: http://qkj4drtgvpm7eecl.onion

counterfeit_money

Seems legit.

I haven’t tried out their services, but my first instinct was that it’s a scam, because other sites like it have turned out to be scams. Speaking of which, Flare also has a “Scam: true or false” label beneath the search results. However, simply because a page is labeled “false” does not necessarily mean that it’s the real thing. I’ve been on the dark web long enough that I’ve started assuming that everything is a scam (or almost everything).

That aside, I like the search engine so far, and I recommend trying it out. Perhaps, if more people start using it, it will improve.

Hey, maybe you could even get your site indexed on it! (Hopefully not the scam version.)

Fresh Onions: Best Tor Link List?

onionscan-transitive

It doesn’t surprise me in the least that you dark web explorers are constantly looking for new links.

I used to often use Harry71’s Onion Spider as a go-to link list when I was looking for new and unusual onion sites. Unfortunately, he no longer updates the site (even though the URL is still active).

That being said, have you heard of the site Fresh Onions? It can be found at http://zlal32teyptf4tvi.onion/.

freshonions

Fresh Onions has its fair share of onion links, and like Harry71’s former site, it’s updated frequently. I was going to take a screenshot of the whole site, but on the device I’m currently using, that function was disabled.

Basically, the list of onions can be sorted by URL, Title, how recently it was added, when it was last visited, or when it was last up (i.e. active). At the time of this writing, it lists 4470 onions, and growing.

So you may be wondering – what kinds of sites are on it?? Well, at first glance, I see a lot of tech sites, some markets, a few forums, and some scam sites. Just what I expected!

While I have yet to create my own onion crawler, here’s a short sampling of some of the sites that are listed on Fresh Onions (note – I make no claim as to the authenticity of any of these; if it sounds like a scam, it probably is.):

http://geekrakaz7kioics.onion – Dark Forum (an anonymous hacking forum)

http://answerstedhctbek.onion – Hidden Answers

http://atmskima36v2nqdc.onion – ATM Skimmer for Sale (likely a scam)

http://hbwc3pyawkeixqtk.onion – DeepHouse – Bienvenue sur DeepHouse!

http://sourcel3zg2kzu4k.onion – Sourcery

http://by5cptxw44znwsbn.onion – Index of /

http://onicoyceokzquk4i.onion – .onion searcher

http://kwf4zz4colvmzb42.onion – Ooga Booga

http://4pf5lakpitrmnpnp.onion – Dungeon Masters: Welcome to Pier!

http://tordox5bgdpmnong.onion – couldn’t connect to this one, but it sounds like a doxing site.

http://nsz6gzlqldxhrvex.onion – NEMESIS Ransomware

http://dark666b5l2e3lcu.onion – Dark Host – real TORland hosting with onion address

Anyhow, if you want to check out the full list, visit the Fresh Onions link above. Have fun, dark web explorers, and don’t get scammed (or kidnapped, for that matter)! I kid.
