Tor Exit Router Page

This is an alternative to the, rather ugly, default “This is a Tor Exit Router” page provided by The Tor Project.

This notice is intended to be placed on a virtual host for a domain that your Tor exit router IP reverse resolves to, so that people who may be about to file an abuse complaint would check it first before bothering you or your ISP.

Please read through this page before using the notice page, there are some settings that you must adjust.


A live demo is available here.


You must configure the notice page before start using it. To do so, open _config.yml with a source code editor like Notepad++ and start adjusting the variables to your needs.

If you need help with YAML syntax, here are some quick references for you:

Variable Type Mandatory? Description
title: String Yes The title of the page.
This will also appear in the page as a h1 heading.
description: String No Disabled by default.
The description meta tag of the page.
ips: String Array No Enabled by default.
The IP address(es) of your Tor exit router(s) that serves the notice page.
name: String Yes Your full name, name or username by which you are known online.
email: String Yes Your contact email that will also receive the complaints.
pgp: String No Disabled by default.
The public PGP key associated to your contact email address.
dmca: Boolean Yes If the machine is located outside of the USA you may hide this section.
true (Default) Displays the DMCA law section on the page.
false Hides the DMCA law section on the page.
credits: Boolean Yes Controls the credits section that links back to my website and this repository.
true (Default) Displays the credits footer on the page.
false Hides the credits footer on the page.

When you’re done adjusting the configuration, build the page.


The index.html file will be inside the _output folder.


Open your torrc configuration file and point DirPortFrontPage to the index.html file you built before. Make sure DirPort is on TCP port 80.

If DirPort is not on TCP port 80, you can setup a web server like nginx or Apache.
