If you are trying to figure out how to find deep web sites then you have got your solution here.
Let me start from some basic and necessary points which you need to know.
What are the Deep Web Sites?
Deep Web sites are those websites on The Tor network which can’t be indexed by traditional search engines like Google, Yahoo and Bing and only accessed with help of special configured software like Tor Browser. Deep web/Dark web website ends with .onion extension for example http://xyz1234aabc.onion. Deep Web Websites name are not memorable since they are quite long and their charters are also random. Legal and illegal both type websites are exist on the darknet.
Deep Web sites are mainly designed to offer service anonymously without getting too much attention. One major issue with websites on the deep web is they go offline often. Sometimes they back online after 2 -3 days or some time goes for forever. But when you know how to find a deep web/tor site, you need to worry about such issues.
Now I think you know what are deep web sites? It is time to move towards next section.
Why it is hard to find a deep web site?
As I earlier said a deep web website can’t indexed by normal search engine. That’s why you can’t Google them. So you need to know about special search engines known as deep web/dark web search engines or Tor Directory. Some Clearnet websites are also sharing deep web links but only few are able to provide working sites links. Most of websites have dead links as I said recently onion sites go down often. That’s why finding the deep web websites become harder for users who don’t have much technical knowledge. But don’t worry by sharing this article, I made you task easy whether you are techy or not.
Tools You Need for Finding Deep Web Sites
I think you have already know that you need some special tools to find the deep web sites or anything on the darknet. Three main tools are Tor Browser, VPN Software and Dark Web/Deep Web Search Engines.
Tor Browser is one of the most used deep web browsers to access Tor websites/deep web websites. It is completely free and provides facility for anonymous browsing and prevents monitoring of internet activists. Tor Browse directs traffic through an overlay network of seven thousands plus relays to hide user’s real location and activities.
Let me make it simpler for you. When you access Clearnet websites like Google.com, Facebook.com and any other websites which you can Google then you need an Internet browser like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Safari etc. Same now you need Tor Browser to access deep web or even finding deep web sites also.
Recently I wrote Tor Browser Review, where I covered all things like is Tor Browser safe enough to browse dark web, is it illegal or how to use Tor Browser. I think you should check this for better understanding of Tor.
When Deep Web Word comes into my mind, Very first thing which got my attention, my own security. I always ask myself, am I completely secure and fully anonymous? Yes, you should also ask yourself. You can’t put yourself in danger whether you are learning about deep web/dark web or accessing darknet. Always make sure to run your VPN software first of all then start browsing, learning about deep web or anything what you are doing. It makes you 100% secure and anonymous by adding additional anonymity layer.
There are lots of VPN Services available in Industry. So Choosing best is become a tedious job. That’s why recently I tested several VPNs and finally compiled a list of top 10 VPN services. Here you can have a look at this list.
I personally use NordVPN and if you ask my suggestion, I will say undoubtedly NordVPN. Since it has dedicated onion over servers and speed is also fastest as compared to other VPNs. I am using NordVPN from four years, I am really happy with their service. It is very user friendly and they keep update with new servers time to time.
Now you know about basic stuff and tools which required to find/access deep web sites safely.
How to Find Deep Web Sites
Let me talk about possible easy ways to find out any hidden service link on the deep web/darknet. Some of most commonly used ways are deep web search engines, onion directory, Reddit. Let me dig deep.
Onion Links Directory plus Blog
This is the best place where you can get active deep web sites links for all categories including carding, paypal, torrent, social networks, red room, erotic and many more. Best thing about TheDarkWebLinks.com, it gives you detailed and informative description means you can know what a particular tor website is offering to their users. Are you wondering? How I am sure that all websites links are active. Let me tell you my friend, this tor directory list is managed by me and every week, I check this list to make sure all mentioned onion links is working. And add to new coming hidden service links also here. I am quite sure once you check this dark web sites directory; you will never look further for any other place. In case, you are not satisfied with TheDarkWebLinks.com then you need to take a look at second solution to know how to find deep web sites.
Deep Web Search Engines
Deep Web Search Engines are those search engines which are capable to index .onion urls and provide several relevant results of your deep web search query. Yes, they are simple and easy to use like Normal search engine Google, Yahoo and Bing. But they offer you full privacy; they don’t keep any eye on your browsing history they don’t track your searches as normal browser do. There are many users who use Duckduckgo to browse Clearnet also since they care more about their privacy.
To search anything on the deep web/dark web, you need Tor search engines. Here, I am listing some simple and easy to use Search Engine links so that you can easily find deep web sites in seconds. Don’t worry, I will also explain how to perform deep web search with the help of onion search engines.
Duck Duck Go
Onion URL: http://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/
It’s not exactly a dark web search engine because it doesn’t index .onion results. But, it’s literally the “best” search engine out there and is better than Google. For starters, it doesn’t trace/track/log your activities. Using its .onion version literally gets you utmost privacy.
Onion URL: http://xmh57jrzrnw6insl.onion/
One of the most popular darkweb search engines. The result-page is a bit messy and outdated, yet, if you need dark web websites, just enter a keyword and you’ll get them.
Onion URL: http://msydqstlz2kzerdg.onion/
Alike Torch, Ahmia too is a darknet search engine. It offers a slightly better interface than Torch. It shows minimal descriptions and the result-page is a one-page endless scroll, hence granting you access to hundreds of darkweb links.
Onion URL: http://hss3uro2hsxfogfq.onion/
notEvil lets you search for your keyword either in the title, or the URLs exclusively if you want to. It has one of the biggest darkweb indexes as far as search engines go. Basic, cluttered interface. Does offer a live, real-time anonymous chat.
A wallet-less marketplace, which accepts both BTC and XMR and offers over 55,000 products is what DarkMarket is. It’s also exclusively run by women, not a “market-feature” yet a distinction nonetheless. 2-FA via PGP available for security. Escrow employed for all trades. F.E offered to select vendors. Vending is priced at a $500.00 vendor-bond, keeps scammers at bay.
Empire Market (Exit Scam)
Onion URL: Empire Market
Empire Market is “the” most popular, established, and successful darkweb market in the industry today. Most users who search for “dark web” actually mean a “darkweb marketplace” and that’s what Empire Market is.
So these are best and working Tor search engine links. They are active from a very long time and give you good relevant results for your searches. You can take a look at my recent post about Deep Web Search Engines to know detailed info about these.
Onion URL: http://dnmugu4755642434.onion
I found Kilos a couple weeks back, and instantly was awed with it!
It’s the only search-engine I’ve seen which actually has an impressive index.
But, more importantly, it doesn’t display “sites”.
Rather, it can be used to find dark web products directly!
Or, more specifically, drugs.
It offers extremely narrow filters which help pinpoint exactly what a user-needs.
They get to select a price-range, marketplace, payment currencies etc.
Direct links to products on darknet markets and forums is then shown.
Note that using Kilos to find deep web sites isn’t illegal.
But, buying, or trying to buy drugs is 100% illegal.
We aren’t suggesting/encouraging/promoting it in any way.

How NOT to find deep web sites?
Because you seem to be new to the whole deep/dark web thing, I believe you shouldn’t skip this section.
Now, most deep/dark web sites do not have a memorable URL or domain. They often consist of a string of alphabets and numbers. E.g. http://3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion/
Hence, scammers and even govt. agencies often create phishing links to such dark web sites. You won’t notice if a new URL is shared with just one different character or alphabet, right?
By doing so, scammers may steal all your funds that you may have stored on a darknet market, Bitcoin trading platform, Bitcoin wallet or any other such place. In the case of law enforcement agencies, they may embed trackers, or just gain access to your files/sensitive information which you may have stored on a specific website.
Hence, you must always be cautious. For starters, do not believe every link on Reddit to be true. It’s extremely easy for anyone to create a new profile and post a link. Always read the comments (if available) from other users below a Reddit post. Also, verify your link from other third-party sources.
Also, do not click on links shared by individuals in your personal messages, E-mails or other similar places. They’re mostly, if not always a scam.
We’ve shared some authentic subreddits above. Most links on those pages can be trusted. And, finally, never trust links that you find on other dark web sites. Meaning, if you go to a dark web site A, and someone has posted links to website B,C,D and so on, do not click on them. Links on the dark web shouldn’t be trusted.
Overall, never access the dark web without a VPN on top of TOR. TOR isn’t 100% safe and has been hacked previously. Hence, a VPN will keep you secure just in case you click on an extremely illegal link (e.g. illegal porn!).
Note: I shared this article only for education and learning purpose. I am not encouraging you to explore deep web/dark web or performing any illegal activity in any way. So what you do on deep web /darknet, it is totally up to you.
