What is an .onion domain?

.onion is a special-use top level domain suffix designating an anonymous hidden service reachable via the Tor network , Wikipedia.

Contrary to the regular domain names, the .onion domain names cannot be randomly assigned, as they are generated in a cryptographically secure way.

This is why they usually look as a random 16-symbols long line of letters and digits; e.g. 3g2upl4pq6kufc4m.onion is an .onion domain for DuckDuckGo search engine.

Why bother launching your site in Tor network?

  • Tor is the secure network where the actions of the user are anonymous and cannot be traced, preventing privacy risks for them and avoiding unnecessary surveillance or wiretapping by malicious parties (or, on some markets, even by oppressive governments).
  • Using cryptographically strong facilities like Tor may be your only way to enter the markets where your service was previously inaccessible. This is the reason why we accept payments in Bitcoin.
  • Launching the “hidden service” in Tor network gives your customers the level of personal security previously available only to the undercover police agents! Read more

What's a “vanity” (readable) .onion domain and why should you obtain it?

  • With sufficiently powerful hardware and using a cryptographic process (similar to Bitcoin mining), instead of a random 16-symbols domain name, you can generate the domain name starting with some particular keywords, e.g. your brand title.
  • The process is very computationally expensive and depends on the length of desired keyword; each extra letter makes the process 16 times more complex!
  • We at OnionName are here to relieve you of the unnecessary technical burden. Getting your .onion domain is now no harder than purchasing a coffee cup.

Your brand is one of your strongest forces.
