CentOS 7 comes with firewalld by default. So disable firewalld because VestaCP uses IPtables & with Fail2ban. Here
Firewall - Iptables
Intrusion Detection  - Fail2ban
# systemctl stop firewalld.service

# systemctl disable firewalld.service
Removed symlink /etc/systemd/system/
Removed symlink /etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.fedoraproject.FirewallD1.service.

# systemctl mask firewalld.service
Created symlink from /etc/systemd/system/firewalld.service to /dev/null. 
Reboot your server so that all updates can take affect and then check your Firewalld Status.
# reboot 
# systemctl status firewalld
firewalld status
