You do not share enough information to actually tell you how to enable it. Not every type of server is setup the same manner. And some methods are better than others for enabling it.

Lets say your website when fully loaded has 500kb and it took 2 seconds to load so what gzip compression does is compressing your 500kb down to 350kb (up to 70%) thus increasing the website load time.

LOL he needs to state if he is on IIS Apache NGINX or what web server he is running. Each have a different method to properly set it up.

invisibe_dude explained it basic enough. It will compress data over the wire to the end user enabling a faster page load.

I know very little about sites but are you saying Apache is the only server that has gzip compression?

LOL nope not even close to what I was saying. If you actually took the time to read what was stated you would know I am asking what server he is on BECAUSE every web server enables things differently.
