What is Date converter?

DC is one of our free online tools which you can use to convert human readable date to eoch time or vice versa.

This tool converts an epoch/unix timestamp into a human readable date. It also lets you do the inverse, i.e. converts a human readable date into an epoch/unix timestamp. It also displays the current epoch/unix timestamp in both seconds and milliseconds.

Epoch, also known as Unix timestamps, is the number of seconds (not milliseconds!) that have elapsed since January 1, 1970 at 00:00:00 GMT (1970-01-01 00:00:00 GMT).

In many modern programming languages, date objects make use of epoch as a starting point from which they compute the inner date value. For example, in Java, the java.lang.Date class is set with the number of milliseconds that have elapsed since epoch.

The Unix epoch (or Unix time or POSIX time or Unix timestamp) is the number of seconds that have elapsed since January 1, 1970 (midnight UTC/GMT), not counting leap seconds (in ISO 8601: 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z). Literally speaking the epoch is Unix time 0 (midnight 1/1/1970), but 'epoch' is often used as a synonym for Unix time. Some systems store epoch dates as a signed 32-bit integer, which might cause problems on January 19, 2038 (known as the Year 2038 problem or Y2038). The converter on this page converts timestamps in seconds (10-digit), milliseconds (13-digit) and microseconds (16-digit) to readable dates.

All tools on this page are based on the date & time settings of your computer and use JavaScript to convert times. Some browsers use the current DST (Daylight Saving Time) rules for all dates in history.
