    The Deep Web

    So last night I found about "The Deep Web"

    "The Deep Web (also called Deepnet, the invisible Web, DarkNet, Undernet or the hidden Web) refers to World Wide Web content that is not part of the Surface Web, which is indexed by standard search engines.

    The deep Web is several orders of magnitude larger than the surface Web"

    ~wiki



    And here I thought I had seen the worst from browsing /b/ once in a while.
    Oh, how wrong could I be.

    My curiosity made me look around a little ...
    And there is a lot of stuff that is banned even on /b/.
    For the first time, I got creeped out browsing and really just closed my browser because of what I saw on my screen.

    I'm not going to post in public how you can get on the deep web.

    But I did felt the need to share the fact that there is much more out there than you can find on Google.
    Promethea, susurration, Toska and 7 others thanked this post.

    I just found out about the Deep Web when I was browsing on Reddit, but supposely there is a plethora of drug transactions, child pornography, snuff films, and other highly illegal stuff on the Deep Web. You can even buy products by using a type of currency that cannot be connected to you, so there's no paper or electronic trail to track you.
    Toska, Kilgore Trout, Psychosmurf and 2 others thanked this post.

    Whoa! And I thought that Wikipedia could consume hours of time. I probably do not want to know what's down there.

    Very interesting, quite disconcerting.

    I also read about this on reddit. Their consensus seems to be that this is really exaggerated. Most of the deep web is things called robot texts or something like that.
    Toska thanked this post.

    The deepest part of the internet is probably not on the web. Web =/= internet, web = a component of internet.

    How would you define something to be "deeper" ?
    The web pretty much IS "the internet"
    Almost everyone will say they "have no internet" when they can't browse while only their DNS servers are down ...

    Most of it is indeed nothing abnormal or legal, just like the surface web.
    However some things are FOR SURE completely illegal which you won't find on the surface web.

    1. Something that doesn't have a web address in the first place, and might even move around.
    2. Something that you can't get to in a browser because it is not listening to HTTP protocol.
    3. Things that are on strange, non-standard ports that you'd never think to use.

    The web is a web of hyperlinks connecting around points on the internet. DNS servers are mainly for human readability. Examples of things that are not web: Torrents, non-browser games, point to point connections, SSH, and anything else that has a non-web browser client. Some of these things you can get to in a web browser, but that is because the server is crossing from one protocol to another with a web based application.

    I simplify complex things. So that hopefully those who have no further knowledge about it would still understand.
    That however, does not mean that I don't know what I'm talking about.

    I'd define "deeper" as harder to find, but still accessible. Which is the case for The Deep Web.

    If either 1. or 2. is used; then it's no longer part of the web. Just the internet.
    3. is used more than you think, my web server is listening on port 12345, none would notice this unless they check their open TCP connections. How many times do you check if the website you're requesting from the server is using port 80?

    Oh and a more technical important use for DNS is to let a static string refer to a dynamic ip, or multiple ip's even.
