 In the first we can discuss the internet:

Internet is full of information. Everyone read topics according to their interest and gain information. Internet is made up of billions of devices connected together and sharing information all over the world.

Big amount of people who don’t know about the internet is divided into three categories. What is Surface Web, Deep web, and dark web? So today we can discuss these three categories.

What is Surface Web:

Are you interested to know what is the surface web is, then reading it?

The surface web is the normal web that is visible for all users using the internet. The websites on the surface web are indexed by search engines. Google is a great example of a search engine. The user can open websites and gain information. But the interesting thing is that the surface web is only a 4% area of the internet that the users used. The internet is a bigger place. But a big amount of people don’t know.

What is Deep Web?

The deep web is the secret web that is not visible to a normal user. The deep web consists of a website or any page on the website which are not indexed by search engines. The user can only access it if he/she has an authorized person to access it and has any permission like (Url, username and password, etc). The deep web is used to store most personal information like (Cloud storage, any organization's personal data military data, etc).

What is Dark Web?

But now we can discuss the most dangerous part of the internet which is called the dark web or darknet. Dark Web is illegal to use. All criminal activities are acted upon on the dark web. Criminal activities like drug dealing, killing humans, etc. The user can only access it if the user has a Tor Browser. The Tor means The Onion Router. It can make layers of many IPs and the user surf the internet anonymously. Many dark web websites are banned by Tor but the dark web is totally not cleared. So my decision is that don’t go on the dark web because it was illegal and I am not responsible for any bad thing.

The writing of this article is only for knowledge. I don’t promote illegal activities and I am not responsible for any illegal activity.

I hope after reading this article you can know about what is the surface web, deep web, and dark web. This is my opinion on this topic. If I can make any mistake please comment to me and I am waiting for your response.

Thank You.
