|Global DNS Network
Global DNS networks usually take advantage of anycast routing and global PoPs to speed up DNS resolution and your site.
Managed infrastructure meansn you don't have to worry about the physical hardware - power, network, hardware components.

|WordPress Expert Support
WordPress support gives you access to experience WordPress experts that can help with troubleshooting broken/non-functional aspects of your WP site.
Page rules allow for granularized control of your caching/firewall and filter by headers/URL. This can also be done via .htaccess but it is not as effective.
Access delegation allows the assigning of certain privileges to another user.

Resources are required for running the scripts necessary to generate your site. For VPS/Dedicated servers, this is dependent on what specs you purchase.

Caching stores static versions of your site to serve to visitors, speeding it up drastically.

Edge cache caches your site at a CDN level, providing massive scalability and performance gains.

Concurrency refers to the number of requests/users that can be served at once. This is also dependent on the site and configuration.

|WAF / Anomaly Detection
A WAF blocks attacks (XSS / SQLi / RFi / etc) against your WordPress site. Anomaly detection finds unexpected surges in traffic/requests and routes them for further verification.

At the end of the day, our servers run on hardware too. In theory, it would be possible to reproduce our stack given ample time, knowledge, and resources. There are many factors and variables to configuring VPS/Dedicated server. While we went off typical offerings, we do understand there are edge cases that may not reflect our chart.
The performance and security of a server are dependent on the system administrator / user who configures it. Therefore, we used ranges for factors that are especially dependent on this.
While many external DDoS / CDN services exist, most cost with additional cost, maintenance, and configuring. It's impossible to account for every variation, and therefore our chart reflects only what is included by default with the service.
We've omitted "Managed" Dedicated servers - these are usually identical to those of a "Managed" VPS save price and virtualization.
Items denoted with * refer to points that are usually not included/configured by default but can be easily set up with basic experience.
