Frequently Asked Questions.

What is Element Home?

Element Home is the Element app, but made faster by hosting it with us rather than a typical free public server. You get a fully managed, dedicated server and five accounts.

How is it better than free Element?

A fully managed, dedicated server means you'll have your own home on Matrix with faster performance. You can also personalise your Element subdomain and IDs for five people.

Why are public servers not as fast?

Free public servers are great, but they typically support huge numbers of people. Element Home gives you a dedicated server which gives you more priority.

What is a personalised domain?

Element Home has a dedicated Element server. You can name it, and create your IDs. So @firstname:surname.ems.host can be yours for you and your family.

Element Home vs Element Cloud?

Element Home is for family and friends. It's quick and easy. Element Cloud is more for the workplace, gives more admin flexibility and needs more tech knowledge.

How do I invite others to my home?

This can be done as you set up your home, or by going to the "invite friends" option from the "create chat" menu on mobile devices.
