You can secure your admin url by adding a key and value as GET variables.

For instance: http://mydomain.com/administrator?xY90w5=UrkZ9eqTy

This is essentially adding another layer of username and password combination.

 You'll need the JLSecure My Site plugin , and you might then want to bookmark your admin url,

Otherwise you'll need to memorize and constantly retype the secret strings.

The Admin Tools extension from Akeeba does an easy setup of .htaccess password protection, which is pretty solid.
One comfortable with code can also add password protection with htaccessadd password protection with htaccess by directly editing the files.
