Should I use SSH or SSL to connect?

I use an app called Querious for Macs to connect to my database. I haven’t really cared about security in the past, because I don’t store credit cards, home addresses, etc. Lately I’ve decided that I should be more secure, across the board, so I’m making some changes.

In my connection settings for Querious it offers SSH and SSL. I have a VPS account and, therefore, not a shared hosting plan. Which of these security options should I be using?

Thank you!

That depends. If you’re connecting to your server and want to open a blank prompt screen, it should be SSH (Secure SHell)
If you’re connecting to a web app then SSL (Secure Socket Layer)
