Daniel Winzen creates this onion site. It’s his personal onion site that he develops in his free time. He started developing this site in August or September 2013 when he wanted to have a platform to host files on to use at school.
Quickly the idea of using a chat at school came up, and he came across a simple Perl chat script called LE-CHAT. When he deployed that on his Raspberry Pi, it was running very slowly and wasn’t really usable for use with several people. So he decided to port some parts he needed to PHP.
This has been the start for him to get deeper into web development, and he has since open-sourced that chat script and several other scripts of this site on his GitHub account. Since then, He has added many new features and improved reliability and his code a lot.
You can use his site to upload/download files, check whether an onion service is online, shorten URLs, chat with others, get an anonymous email address and XMPP account, host your own website on Tor or simply browse through his huge list of a known onion website.
Daniel is an excellent resource to help you explore different dark web links and the Tor browser in general. Daniel’s website lists 7000 onion links which are categorized to make browsing easier. Moreover, it has a very useful built-in functionality which lets you know whether a particular website is online. This is very useful, as it means you don’t need to click and load every dark web link listed to see if it’s working. Especially with the potentially long loading times of the Tor browser, this is a great feature.
