What time do clocks go forward
Are you about to make an International long distance phone call? Are you planning a trip to a foreign destination? Are you preparing for a web cast or online meeting? Are you looking for a free clock for your own web site or blog? Just want to know what time it is?
The Internet can bring you closer to the world, but with time zones and daylight saving time rules, World Time Server is here to help by providing accurate time information when you need it!
World Time Server shows current time and date in cities and countries in all time zones, automatically adjusted for local Daylight Saving Time rules. Convert times from one location to another or even check current international weather conditions.
Why use World Time Server?
1. has the right time for more places than just major cities!
Every time zone is represented, but instead of limiting our time data to a select list of cities, we start with country borders to define our time locations. Where needed, we add more detail to divide countries into their proper state/province/territory borders. We even document smaller exceptions as necessary to cover the places other sites avoid!
That's why we make "Any time, anywhere" our motto!
uses our own self-maintained database with accurate adjustments for Daylight Saving Time or Summer Time.
With no official resource to get this data (such as the UN), many Fortune 500 companies depend on our vigilant research and our contacts with governments, embassies, newspapers to keep up with the ever-changing Daylight Saving Time rules for zones around the world. You can depend on us, too!
has the best world time converter.
one exact place and exact time your event will occur and we'll give you a link to email or post on your website. Everyone who follows the link gets to pick their home location to compare their time directly with yours. No big list of world cities to distract anyone, no math required.

More information about this web site
How did we get started with this? We were working on a project for international travelers and needed time zone data to complete the job. We expected it to be easy -- surely someone, perhaps the United Nations, would have this data available. Instead, we found that no one really knew the right data for EVERY location. We looked in books, atlases, and web sites and found nothing we could depend on. The available resources either avoided areas that were difficult to determine, provided disclaimers that they were "not guaranteed to be accurate" or provided information that was just plain wrong or outdated.
Our answer to finding accurate information was to do it ourselves. We spend hundreds of hours of exhaustive research to compile the data this site is based on. We continue to maintain and check our data to ensure that it remains accurate in the future.
