Hi celal.
Congratulations on successfully installing CentOS. I have never use that software, I am not a web administrador and I am not a business person neither. But I am guessing to host the web site for your business you will have to download and set up Apache in CentOS. If you just want to use it for file server then you will have to download and set up SAMBA, and SSH and learn how to log in from a remote location if needed.
some of these programs might be already in the system I am not sure. Find out what firewalls are available in CentOS as well and set them up the way you think is best for you

Expect to do some documentation reading too. You might be up for some heavy learning with this experience.
Good luck to you!

Because you are new to Linux you should read some basic guides like Rute's and given some responses in threads of yours, especially posts #13 and #14, I suggest you read the Centos Administrator's Guide, configure accounts, system logging, network access and remote backups, run a baseline audit and harden your machine before doing anything else.

* Note that running web-based management panel does not equal having actual system administrator skills.
** Also note that because Linux comes free of cost it does not mean using it is free of responsibilities.
