As of February 2020, this is now technically possible, but it has yet to be implemented by Let's Encrypt.
Why https for .onion domains?
First, I think it's necessary to point out that there are non-security-related, logistical reasons for why you'd want to add a valid TLS cert for a website served on an onion service: there are many tools/protocols that are ...
Yes, even while you're at home on the same network, your traffic will travel through the Tor network over the Internet. Since onion services are supposed to be "hidden", the Tor client doesn't know that they're on the same network.
If you are only using Tor for the "NAT traversal" feature, you might be interested in setting up a single-...
Your closest option would be tor's MapAddress option. You can use this to set up an alias for all connections made by the tor client.
MapAddress blah.fx fvadgbdfgbdfg5vdg46dg6v4df6gv4dfgd6f4g8vdf4g864.onion

Onion service options apply to the earlier/previous HiddenServiceDir option, so I would expect your hsv3 address to be v2, and your hsv2 to be v3.
You should move the HiddenServiceVersion 2 line after your HiddenServiceDir /var/lib/tor/hidden_service/hsv2 line:
HiddenServicePort 80 127.0.0.1:8080
As I understand, port 80 is blocked by another, unrelated service you can't or won't change. But are you able to change the config of that service? So you could set it to bind only to your clearnet ip port 80 (and not all interfaces / at least not localhost), so that you can set your onion service to listen on localhost port 80 and then configure Tor to ...
I don't know of any uptime SaaS providers that support monitoring websites on their onion service endpoints.
Until that day comes (as it's hard to think of a reason why any admins shouldn't make their websites accessible at a .onion address--which benefits the privacy of their visitors), a simple solution is just to spin up a small micro sever (such as the &...
Which programming languages are used to write onion webpages
