Deep web – Everyone who crosses the word “deep web” will be curious to know about it. To those who really need to access it and needs to know about it or need to surf the deep web safely, we got you some intersting facts and basic stuffs you need to know about the deep web.
What is deep web? is that a ghost? ghost of internet? NO. Deep web is the under world of the internet.
Let me clear you first that you cannot access the deep web with your regular browsers or search engines. You must need a different browser name TOR browser to access the deep web.
We must have come across the regular extension of the internet such as “.com .in .us .eu etc., etc.,” but not “.onion” extension, example “xxxx.onion“. The sites with “.onion” extension are only found in deep web and they can be browsed only through the special browser TOR.
Almost about 98% of the internet are hidden under deep web and if you are new to the term deep web you are been fooled with the 2% of the internet.
You may have a question “Why the popular search engines or the browsers don’t index .onion sites.” It is because that most of the sites in deep web are inappropriate and most them of are scams. Not only because of this, the main reason for building such a network is that to maintain the anonymity of the user. For example “A person who provided an information and the person who access the information don’t know each other and their anonymity will be maintained.”
Before entering briefly you must know that deep web differs from dark web. Both are not same.

WHY YOU NEED A VPN BEFORE ACCESSING THE DEEP WEB
Consider that you are using a reputed browsers and surfing through the internet. If you need to download some movies or songs you will visit a website to download the data. While using the website it may throw or take you to the new site where the actual process of inserting virus to your PC begins, where the virus gets installed in your PC and works without your knowledge.
In this case if you use a VPN, the VPN stops the actual process and you remain safe. Simple.
