CL is the best OS for hosting, take a look at the features, and you'd know why.
you are aware

CloudLinux is an add-on for cPanel web hosting services that installs a new kernel that helps system administrators to better manage cPanel web hosting users So it is not a standalone OS.

I like Debian, but I think most of the web hosting world uses CentOS (or RHEL). If you use what most everyone else uses, you can benefit from other people using the same OS. It may be hard to find help for web hosting issues if you use Debian, since most people do not use it.

I'd probably avoid Ubuntu in a server environment, Ubuntu is more of a desktop operating system. I suppose it can be used in a server environment, but you'd probably be just as well off using Debian in that situation. Ubuntu is based on Debian.

+1 for CentOS - The long release cycles mean having to build some things from source, but it also means stability and familiarity.

centos is more of an enterprise distribution and its has a few advanced network features that debian lacks, maybe not anymore but a few years ago did. as a result a lot of shared webhosting servers deployed CENTOS

+1 for CentOS.

It can be switched to CloudLinux easily.
CloudLinux IS a standalone version of Linux, which can be used with a variety of hosting panels or on its own using command line tools.
Most commonly used with cPanel, DirectAdmin or Plesk which recommend the use of CloudLinux with their Platform.
