The Danger Zone of The Internet

Note: I will be writing my articles in both English and Spanish now. The Spanish translation will be written at the bottom. Apologies in advance for any grammatical errors in the Spanish translation. Spanish is not my first language and most of what is written will be put through a translation software.

Normal web browsers such as Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge only show us 5% of the websites on the internet. That 5% is known as the Surface Web. The Surface Web is what contains the common everyday websites such as, Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Reddit, and PeakD. But that is just a very small fraction of what is on the Surface Web. The Deep Web and the Dark Web is where the remaining 95% of websites are contained. Both require a special web browser to access the sites there. The Deep Web is where you start to find personal info of others, and most likely your own info which was most likely stolen and sold by large companies for profit or it was stolen in a data breach. “You can also find legal documents along with financial records.” Source: https://traversals.com/blog/surface-web/ . The Dark Web is where things start to become illegal. Activities such as Human Trafficking, Drug Trafficking, Illegal Gambling, Ghost Gun Markets, Identity Forging, Hitmen For Hire, and Illegal Porn are just a few of the illegal activities that you can find on the Dark Web. Tor is a common browser used to access the Deep Web and the Dark Web. One of the reasons why it is so dangerous to be on the Dark Web is that you are more likely to become a victim of Malware and/or Ransomware. In Conclusion, the Deep and Dark Web is where you can find many of the most dangerous and illegal websites on the Internet.

Nota: ahora escribiré mis artículos tanto en inglés como en español. La traducción al español se escribirá en la parte inferior. Disculpas de antemano por cualquier error gramatical en la traducción al español. El español no es mi primer idioma y la mayor parte de lo que está escrito se pasará a través de un software de traducción.

Los navegadores web normales como Google Chrome y Microsoft Edge solo nos muestran el 5% de los sitios web en Internet. Ese 5% se conoce como Surface Web. Surface Web es lo que contiene los sitios web cotidianos comunes como Google, Yahoo, Facebook, Reddit y PeakD. Pero eso es solo una fracción muy pequeña de lo que hay en Surface Web. La Deep Web y la Dark Web es donde se encuentra el 95% restante de los sitios web. Ambos requieren un navegador web especial para acceder a los sitios allí. La Deep Web es donde comienza a encontrar información personal de otros, y muy probablemente su propia información que probablemente fue robada y vendida por grandes empresas con fines de lucro o fue robada en una violación de datos. “También puede encontrar documentos legales junto con registros financieros.” Fuente: https://traversals.com/blog/surface-web/ . La Dark Web es donde las cosas comienzan a volverse ilegales. Actividades como la trata de personas, el tráfico de drogas, el juego ilegal, los mercados de armas fantasma, la falsificación de identidad, los sicarios a sueldo y la pornografía ilegal son solo algunas de las actividades ilegales que puede encontrar en la Dark Web. Tor es un navegador común que se utiliza para acceder a la Deep Web y la Dark Web. Una de las razones por las que es tan peligroso estar en la Dark Web es que es más probable que se convierta en víctima de Malware y / o Ransomware. En conclusión, la Deep and Dark Web es donde puede encontrar muchos de los sitios web más peligrosos e ilegales de Internet.


I have heard about the dark web a couple of times and I have been left awed each time. Difficult to imagine that as Huge as the 'surface web' is, it is still only 5% of the entire web. A curious mind would want to have a peep into what the 95% looks like really but it appears too dangerous a mission.

Good piece of info that most of your everyday peeps don’t even realize. Good job!

What do you think @gentleshaid?

Insane that the surface web is only 5% of the entire web. No one could have thought.

Yes, many don’t realize this. Maybe we should look to curate little rhino’s piece to get the word out😀
