One good use of cron for a web server is using cron for routine back-ups. For example, schedule back-ups to be copied on another server, if something dies you'll have a recent copy of it.
You can also schedule a task to run after a reboot if it were to go down for any reason. For example, let's say rebootscripts.sh contained useful commands that are vital in running your website.
In cron:
@reboot /scripts/rebootscript.sh
