Yes you can unpack a tar archive which has gz / bz or any other UNIX native form of compression from SSH or telnet but if you upload a zipped archive to your server than uncompressing/extracting it is not always simple and sometimes not even possible.

The only way that I have found is via PHP, but for that the server must support PHP unzip function, you make a simple php script that tells the sever to unzip the archive.

You cannot unzip directly from SSH unless you have the unzip package installed, which most of the server don’t have.
Unzip or extracting from FTP is not possible as FTP is only a file transfer protocol and is very restricted in what it can do.
