gzip can only compress a single file. tar can archive multiple files, but it doesn't compress them. Therefore the two tools are oftne used together: first you archive all the files into one with tar, then you compress that file with gzip

and you use it like this
tar -cvzpf archive.tgz /home/example/public_html/folder
good luck
