TorSearch

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

TorSearch is an internet search engine that indexes pages to help find content in websites located on the Tor network.[1]

Background[edit]

Tor websites have neither domain names nor IP addresses and hence aren't usually indexed by conventional search engines. Tor websites are notoriously difficult to search,[1][2] owing in part to the lack of a centralized domain name system (DNS) on the Tor network, and the scarcity (and low reliability) of links on reputable websites indexing Tor sites and their reputations.
