Thanks Bro, your answers helped me !

200 Mbit/s Port will be enough fast ? ( its important for me not to damage my google rank )
Almost many providers gives better Port speed... 500- 1GBps

Which provider you have shortlisted to try?

FRom where your visitor come from? i.e USA, EU or asia
If your most visitors come from USA and nearby areas then batter use USA based VPS. Contabo mainly provide VPS from Germany although they also provide from USA.

My suggession is use Centos web Panel (CWF) as your conrol panel. It is free and has builtin options of Nginx with Varnish & Apache.

you can use MX record mail.example.com or example.com
both are same.
For open webmail you can use mail.example.com or exaple.com/webmail

is your server hostname is Hostname: mail.example.com?
if yes this should be change to somthing else like server.example.com because mail prefix will be sued for mail server

first go to Server settings > change hostname
Set your desired hostname there like server.example.com
then go to MaleServer manager and select your desired options like AntiSpam/AntiVirus and just hit rebuild mail server.

you nothing need to change anything like domain or hostname here

Try aapanel bro. It was made specifically for nginx as prime.
centos web panel was originally made for the apache environment.
cyberpanel was made for litespeed and now supports openlitespeed as prime choice.

In aapanel, php-fpm and the best configuration is provided FREE. They offer an additional nginx WAF if interested for a fee (paid).

Otherwise, if going with nginx and Wordpress the best option will be going with WordOps (you will love the speed and performance here)...its not a panel though but a bundle of good configuration to run your Wordpress at good stand.

Unless we see what files and misconfiguration you did with the settings, we cant simply comment on a solution. You can try posting it in the respective support forums (centos forum) for a speedy help on this.

Also, try clearing browser cache/cookies because that's the cause many times not reflecting the changes. Also try clearing your DNS cache.
A simple method is to use proxy server/connection and browse to the domain/IP using incognito mode and check if its still the same.

And if your site is having high traffic or may get high traffic in coming days then you should not be using nginx as it has known issues of not handling high traffic/requests (simultaneous).

I think default configuration is ok. Personally I recommend Nginx + Varnish + Apache php-cgi/suphp because suphp is more secure but have a very little performace degrade. php-fpm normally needed only if you need multi php version enviroment.
when you install any control panel, unless you assign a dedicated IP to each website the direct IP access is not possible using http://167..0.0.0.0, you have to use domain name isntead or you can visit using http://167..0.0.0.0/~username

Side note: in CWP the default configurations is ok unless you need a special configuration.
