    If your FTP program has an option to compress, then its going to also have an option to extract, or de-compress so look for that option. Otherwise, just extract the files on your local computer using something like winrar and then upload the extracted files.

    Thanks Solar but i don't want to put files on desktop and then upload files again in public_html because will need a time. I want already compressed files to extract in empty public_html. But i don't know how.

    Please check screenshot https://prnt.sc/g7bkoj

    As you can see there is 1.1 gb and that files i want to extract in public_html, from where they are now.

    Well, then, right-click on the zip-file, and extract it? Or, if you can't find the extraction in the menu, email your host and ask them to put the content of that zip-file in your public_html-folder for you. Note that if you compressed the folder itself (the public_html folder, not the files inside) then it might balk at trying to overwrite the existing public_html folder.

    Are you using cPanel? If so, this is very easy when using the File Manager feature. You can move files around and compress/extract a variety of archive types.

    u can unzip it from anywhere
    ftp if have extract function
    cpanel using file manager (they have extract function)
    ssh using unzip command (if you have access to ssh)

    and you can do that all in server without need to extract it first on desktop
