NetworkManager disables internet

I am installing cPanel onto a VPS on my Hetzner dedicated server, At first, I test my internet connection, I ping a few hosts (Google, Cloudflare DNS etc), good responses, then I go to disable NetworkManager using the following:

systemctl stop NetworkManager
systemctl disable NetworkManager

And I enable network.service and start, I then restart the server. I come back into it, and am unable to ping the same hosts or cURL other websites. I have no idea why this happens, I try running ifup eth0, doesn't effect it.

@ffeingol - update your links to our new pages ;) - How to Disable Network Manager | cPanel & WHM Documentation

@h4yd3n - if you follow that guide and still experience issues this may actually be a good question to ask your hosting provider as this is something that should get adjusted before cPanel is installed and not something our software has any control over. Let me know if that guide doesn't help!
