  • Use your provider's VNC console to check iptables?

    On the other hand, getyourowndamnsysadmin.

  • I dont think iptables will block port 22 by default. Maybe some error during system installation, so a reinstall would possibly work.

  • Have you checked if the VPS was online? Have you tried using the console that every VPS should have?

    My guess would be a bad template that has root login disabled - and no other way to create a new user during setup, which I think is standard in CentOS 7? (maybe? it is in Debian 8 & Ubuntu 16, I know that).

    I don't believe OP can even connect to the SSH service, unless template has fail2ban preloaded and he got himself banned.
