How to Zip and UnZip files and folders online directly on my server's hosting account?

I've tried several ways to zip folders and unzip them online (zip/tar/rar/gzip) but it seems that i'm unable to do so, each format bringing his difficulties...
please tell me what format is best and what tool to use to compress (7zip for exemple doesn't allow multi-file archives in gzip)
Thanks if you can help

I find that the most convent means of zipping up a folder for upload and download is to use an scp client such as winscp
Once there you can tar/gzip files by clicking on the file and going to 'custom commands' and choosing tar/gzip.
