So recently I have been unable to access some onion sites. At first I thought that just the site I was visiting was down but as I have done more research it seems like half of the sites I try to access wont work. I get the error

Problem loading onionsite Onionsite Not Found

The most likely cause is that the onionsite is offline. Contact the onionsite administrator.

Details: 0xF0 — The requested onion service descriptor can't be found on the hashring and therefore the service is not reachable by the client.

These are V3 site addresses not V2, I have tried mirrors, checking my data and time against the wiki clock, getting a new identity, and a fresh reinstall of the tor browser.

Anyone else having this issue or solved it in the past?


  • Have you confirmed on another device that these onion addresses actually work? Are these official addresses for popular services (DuckDuckGo, Facebook, etc) that you're sure are really online?

Looks like your Tor binary is too outdated. Just download an expert bundle and use it with a browser you prefer - or compile it by hand from source.


If your inability to access sites is intermittent, it could be because the network is frequently getting DDoS'ed.
