Our free unix (epoch) timestamp conversion tools

and converters require the use of JavaScript enabled and browsers capable of receiving AJAX XML responses. These calculators are designed to calculate and display the UNIX timestamp from entered data for standard universal time in month, day, year, hour, minute and second format, based on GMT or other timezones. Click on the related buttons and the UNIX timestamp in seconds will be calculated. The default initial time of midnight 1/1/1970 (0 hours, 0 minutes and 0 seconds) will return the starting point of the UNIX timestamp, 0. You can convert here unix timestamps into human readable dates/times, dates into timestamps and strings into timestamps. If you are concerned about daylight saving time don't worry, our tools take it into consideration as well.

Daylight saving time

(DST), also summer time in British English, is the convention of advancing clocks so that afternoons have more daylight and mornings have less. Typically clocks are adjusted forward one hour near the start of spring and are adjusted backward in autumn; the ancients lengthened summer hours instead. Presaged by a 1784 satire, modern DST was first proposed in 1907 by William Willett, and 1916 saw its first widespread use as a wartime measure aimed at conserving coal. Despite controversy, many countries have used it since then; details vary by location and change occasionally.

Unix time

or POSIX time, is a system for describing points in time: it is the number of seconds (timestamp) elapsed since midnight UTC of January 1, 1970, not counting leap seconds. It is widely used not only on Unix-like operating systems but in many other computing systems. It is neither a linear representation of time nor a true representation of UTC (though it is frequently mistaken for both) as the times it represents are UTC but it has no way of representing UTC leap seconds (e.g. 1998-12-31 23:59:60).

Unix timestamps

are the number of seconds since midnight, January 1, 1970 GMT (referred to as the Epoch). They are much easier to manipulate than any other date/time strings. For example, if you need to refer to 10 days from today, it is easier to add (10 days * 24 hours * 60 minutes * 60 seconds) seconds to the current timestamp than using several conditions to separate the related description words.

Modern Unix time and it's timestamp

is based strictly on UTC. UTC counts time using SI seconds, and breaks up the span of time into days. UTC days are mostly 86 400 s long, but are occasionally 86 401 s and could be 86 399 s long (though the latter option has never been used as of December 2006) in order to keep the days synchronised with the rotation of the Earth (or Universal Time).
   When a leap second occurs, so that the UTC day is not exactly 86 400 s long, a discontinuity occurs in the Unix time number. The Unix time number - timestamp increases by exactly 86 400 each day, regardless of how long the day is. When a leap second is deleted (which has never occurred as of 2006), the Unix time number (timestamp) jumps up by 1 at the instant where the leap second was deleted from, which is the end of the day. When a leap second is inserted (which has occurred on average once every year and a half), the Unix time number increases continuously during the leap second, during which time it is more than 86 400 s since the start of the current day, and then jumps down by 1 at the end of the leap second, which is the start of the next day.
