-Tor or Onion network is a security project that increases anonymity of traffic. The idea is to redirect connections via random nodes in Internet. It's a complex protocol and we're not going to go much in details here but for anything extra needed as usual the official documentation is the place to consult first. Encryption, anonymization and multi-hop come with a price as the ultimate user experience is likely to be affected negatively. You will not want to send interactive traffic over the Tor network nor heavy downloads as the multi-hop increases latency significantly.\\+Tor a.k.a. "The Onion Router" is a security project that increases anonymity of traffic. The idea is to redirect connections via random nodes (overlays) in Internet. It's a complex protocol and we're not going to go much in details here but for anything extra needed as usual the official documentation is the place to consult first. Encryption, anonymization and multi-hop come with a price as the ultimate user experience is likely to be affected negatively. You will not want to send interactive traffic over the Tor network nor heavy downloads (e.g. torrent) as the multi-hop increases latency significantly. The Tor network comes with internal DNS system and specifically is authoritative for ''.onion'' domain which exists exclusively here. Modern browsers might have internal solution implemented to resolve .onion domains like adding a suffix ''.link'' or ''.cab'' to the .onion domain or else which you might want do cross check with the browser official documentation.\\
