I'm flummoxed about these two terms. I know they are different, but can someone please elaborate on the two? People may be fooled looking for cloud hosting, and the provider may be giving cloud Linux hosting.

It appears you have pointed the following types,

Cloud Hosting - > Hosting the accounts/application in servers running on cloud based platforms like AWS,Azure,DigitalOcean etc.
The server type should be virtualized , running on any Hypervisor with lots of advanced feature to customize the server infrastructure and features to provide reliability,salability and stability.

CloudLinux -> Is a bit different concept, a highly secured Linux kernel (CloudLinux kernel - owned by third party vendor )will be implemented to the a Linux Operating System on normal server, which claims high security against potectial kernel vulnerabilities.

Cloud Hosting is a hosting type in which clients get the cloud environment to host a website.

CloudLinux is a Linux based operating system, and it is specially designed for shared hosting providers. It isolates every customer into a separate “Lightweight Virtualized Environment” (LVE). LVE is a kernel-level technology that isolates individual tenant into their environment and provides them with the number of resources (CPU, IO, memory, processes, etc.) CloudLinux OS also protects tenants from one another to avoid security breaches.
