My host is not allowing SSH.

Can someone please let me know how can I use rsync with the Cpanel cron job to make backup of my public_html folder to a remote web server?

I need a sample cron job command please...

Try something like

30 0 * * * /usr/bin/rsync -ave ssh /home/you/public_html/* you@remoteserver.com:./backups/remote/public_html/

This says at 12:30am every day sync the local public_html dir to the remote server. (not guaranteed to work, experiment by setting the execution time to 2 minutes from now and then check if it worked) You will have to also set up 'quick login keys' to the remote server. You'll have to be tricky and execute the commands with cron I guess.
See this post for a tutorial:
Backup up your webserver to your home computer. [webmasterworld.com]
Super short version to making quick login keys:

ssh-keygen -t rsa
(no passphrase)
ssh user@server "mkdir .ssh; chmod 700 .ssh"
scp .ssh/id_rsa.pub user@server:.ssh/authorized_keys2

When I try this by Corn job:

/usr/bin/rsync -avz -e ssh /home/myacct/public_html/public_html remoename@remoteserver.com:ridhaacom

I am getting the following error message:

/etc/ssh/ssh_config line 39: Unsupported option "GSSAPIAuthentication"
Host key verification failed.
rsync: connection unexpectedly closed (0 bytes received so far) [sender]
rsync error: error in rsync protocol data stream (code 12) at io.c(359)

Try toggling that option off or commenting it out in /etc/ssh/ssh_config.
