How to Make a Hidden Tor Website or Service



Tor is a free software implementation of second-generation onion routing, a system enabling its users to communicate anonymously on the Internet. You can make your own website or server inside TOR and it will be hidden inside the TOR network, so no one will know who made the website or where it is actually located.

In this tutorial, we will use Savant web server to create a hidden service on TOR. 

Installing the TOR:

The first thing to do is to download Tor and install it on your computer. If you already have Tor on your computer, you can skip this step. By default, it has a specially configured its own browser which will let you access the Tor websites and services. This is how the Tor Control Panel looks like when you launch it.

A green icon will appear on your task bar when you’re connected to the Tor network.


Keep in mind that your PC or machine must be switched on at all times to make sure your website is accessible to others. If your computer is not connected to the internet or if your PC is switched off, the service won’t be accessible.

Web Server Installation and Configuration:

Now we have required a web server for the hosting purposes. Tor recommends using an Apache server so we will be using Savant web server. Download Savant Web Server and install it. Now open up Savant Web Server and click Configuration and write localhost in Server DNS Entry to make your website private and inaccessible for other users and to prevent others from identifying your IP.


Once you have configured it, now its time to add contents to your site, so go to the place where Savant is installed, by Default (C:\Savant\Root) and replace the index.html with your homepage. You can edit the page to suit your wish to make it live where ever you want.

Registering Your Site to TOR:

As you have installed TOR and your service is up and running. Now you have to tell Tor that you have done it and register the information to the torrc file. So first, shut down TOR if it is running at present.


Now you need to find the torrc file. By default, it’s in the Tor Browser\Data\Tor folder. Open the file with notepad or any other similar editors.


Now add these lines at the end of the file:

# Hidden Service
    HiddenServiceDir C:\Users\Name\tor_service
    HiddenServicePort 80 127.0.0.1:80

Save the file and make sure you create the directory you specified in the lines if you do not have them already.





Save the file and make sure you create the directory you specified in the lines if you do not have them already.


Now restart Tor once you have done this. Make sure there are no errors listed in the Messages log.


Check out the hidden service directory you created. Tor will have created two files in the directory hostname and private_key. Don’t give anyone the private_key file or they’ll be able to impersonate your hidden service Tor site.

Now you need to open the hostname file using Notepad or any other text editor and it will tell you the address of your Tor website. Plug this into your address bar and hit enter to see your very own TOR website.


Give the address to others so they can access your site. Remember, people must be using TOR to access your hidden service site.

  1. So, does this hide me from the authorities too or can I be traced to my house address for anything I may host?

  2. Where is Savant installed? I don't see it anywhere. The installation package starts, and closes abruptly.
