Are Web Host Essential and 1-CPU licenses actually the same?

The Web Host Essential license and 1-CPU license are very similar. 

The difference is the Web Host Essential license includes LSCache by default, while you must choose to add LSCache to your 1-CPU license. 

A 1-CPU license with LSCache is as powerful as the 1-CPU license with LSCache, and also costs the same.
