How to use the linux zip prog


I'm making a web site and I can't use FTP in that "Free Server". The faster way to upload files is to making a Zip with all the contents inside and upload it and the server will decompress it on the server. I've read the zip man page but I don't understand how to make an entire directory a zip file. Can anybody help me?

Code:
zip someFileName.zip someDirectory/*
Should work just fine.
