Yes, the deep web/dark net exists. You generally access it via Tor (the onion router). It's Firefox configured to surf the deep web. A web address on the dark net when accessed by Tor has a .onion address (not .com).
Like all things, the dark net has good and bad users. It allows people living in non-democratic regimes to communicate outside of the watchful eye of the government. And there are thousands of forums on various topics including extreme hate. And it's also a marketplace for drugs, guns, human trafficking, hiring a hitman, etc. The Hidden Wiki is sort of the "front door" to some of the more common sites.
I understand the desire to explore, but I would use extreme caution down there. Depending on what nation you're in, you could run afoul of certain laws. And it is indeed the home to some very serious elements of organized crime.

Different clients, seeds, Tor releases (Firefox adds, plugins and whole versions), often by invitation only. Many Tor sources require a specific key based on a set of specific MAC and IP address combinations before forwarding to the final host. Some of these are incredibly complex security structures and cannot be "seen" directly from the web. Ever looked at a suspect device in say DNSTools but cannot discern what traffic should be accepted on the box after trying this like http://1ww.xxx.yyyy.zzzz, etc? NMap the box and see the server only responds to traffic on some odd port like 5603 and 45998? Its likely dark web at work. Carders, bitcoin exchanges and many odd **** sites (of many different predilections) have been known to be fond of using these sorts of obfuscation tricks.
Surprised why someone hasn't asked for a specific example of a dark web example. Answer is its safe to say it defeat the whole reason for hiding the site in the first place. Google one, lol.
Yes, Virginia, dark web sites do indeed exists. Now back to bypassing A/V for fun and profit.

I have read about it but you guys have made me interested in checking it out. The Subway guy probably hung out there.

In a financial company I used to work I was actually asked to see if I can access TOR to test some logging tools. And yes, it was a pain, it was slow, but it existed ... Things you can buy * shakes head *

I believe Clearnet as well is another browser you can access deep web on

No, clearnet is the normal 'internet'. The darknet is accessible only via TOR.
