This question has been asked several times at the forum, for example Does hiding Admin Panel URL help with Security?

In addition to the options presented in the earlier topic, check the cPanel provided by your host. Its section 'Files' may have the option 'Directory Security', which allows you to add to the administrator folder a separate username and password, which are independent of the Joomla installation:
cPanel wrote:Set a password to protect certain directories of your account. When you enable this feature, a user that tries to open a protected folder will be prompted to enter a username and password before they can access your content.
