Reidel Law Firm

Read Case Study

[...] After a review of available options and what would be best for our Firm’s use case, we decided to utilize the Matrix protocol with the Element client for our secure, encrypted chat platform. The Matrix protocol allows for a decentralized communications platform which is also fully encrypted (even us, as the server host, cannot read encrypted messages sent within Matrix or on our server) and allows for flexibility for our clients to engage us in a multitude of apps or outside platforms.

Why prices are ridiculously low? All prices are based on Pay What You Want model with a minimal (floor) price set and we encourage you to pay more if you want.

1. Server details

To setup a matrix server, we need to know following information (and yes, email is for your matrix server, used to obtain SSL certificates, and as fallback contact method if matrix message is not an option).

2. Web clients

[matrix] is open protocol, so there are different client apps you can use with your homeserver. We provide following web clients out of the box so you don't need to install anything.


A glossy web client with an emphasis on performance and usability. All new matrix features implemented in that app first.


A Matrix client where you can enjoy the conversation using simple, elegant and secure interface. The most beautiful app.


Web client focusing on personal messaging, performance, offline usage and wide browser support, including mobile! Experimental app, lacks features.

3. Components

You can extend your homeserver with bridges to different chat networks and additional "non-Matrix" components.
