i am using TOR to scrape .onion website.

i am making 1 request per second to be on safe side.

my question is can TOR network/specific relay server BAN my server's IP address for making too many requests in short period of time ?

what happens if something like this happens ?

will TOR installed on my machine find new relay on its own or i have to issue ?

service tor restart

every few hours for finding new relay servers ?


Tor will not ban you but your target site can.
