Keep in mind that by uploading your hs_ed25519_secret_key to ANY third party hosting you're losing control over it. Beauty of TOR is you can run your Hidden Service from your own hardware and be perfectly safe

The secret key (hs_ed25519_secret_key) is the onion service's private key.

The hs_ed25519_secret_key file does not have an extension. You should add this file to your tor hidden service directory. This is often in /var/lib/tor/, but it depends on how you installed tor. You also need to make sure to set the correct permissions for this file. You will also need to set up the onion service in your torrc file.

  • Hi, I want you to know that I am not hosting the site on my pc but I will use a TOR host and for that I have to upload the private key file on it.

  • Okay I don't know what a Tor host is, but you should upload the hs_ed25519_secret_key file as that is the private key.
