    are you logged into the command line interface? or do you want to do it via a windows ftp program like filezilla?

    I would use 7-Zip to extract the files on your computer, then upload them via ftp. I'm not sure if cPanel extracts RARs.

    I think it's not possible to unrar on the server. You need to extract it, zip it to .zip type then upload to the server.

    To Decompress rar file, open command prompt and type following command :
    unrar x filename.rar


    As an alternative, u can ask ur host to do this in2.php.net/rar then rar will work with php.

    Go to cpanel and use their file manager, it's right click option should have the option to compress and uncompress stuffs.

    I think it works on cPanel. Otherwise just use something lime FileZilla
