you should create new onion domain with its private key.
Making Onion Domain
you will have to use software Shallot.
If you have Linux at your home PC/Laptop, just install shallot (
./configure && make) and use it (
If you use Windows, you will have to use virtualbox + linux iso file, and then install shallot. I chose bodhi linux iso file but it was the same case like debian and ubuntu, I had to install dependencies.
Shallot is located at: https://github.com/katmagic/Shallot
For installation on server, use
wget command for downloading/grabbing files to the server:
(in my case I had to: sudo apt-get install zip unzip). Then you will get folder named
Shallot-master, walk into that folder:
Then configure and use it:
After that, you can use it, command is:
But usually most of people will get "dependencies error", it means you must install g++ or c++, whatever else (you can try: sudo apt-get install build-essential). Therefore I rather chose to install Shallot at my home PC.
Beside it, I succeeded to make onion domain with 7 letters (as I wanted) in 2 hours. But general rule is: There are 14 signs in onion domain and shallot will make for you 3 signs as you want in 1 second, 4 in 2 seconds, 5 in 1 minute, 6 in 30 minutes, 7 in 1 day, 8 signs in 25 days, and so on.
When you get onion domain as you wanted, copy private key in file called hostname which is located at
it should be like this:
content of file should look like this:
second file should be:
it should look like this:
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
P.S. Scallion could also be used for the generation of hidden service hostname/key.
It is much faster than Shallot, but requires a GPU - https://github.com/lachesis/scallion
