Yes there are couple ways that you can limit access to your admin page. You could either restrict access to the /admin folder by your IP address by adding this to your .htaccess file:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} ^/admin
RewriteCond %{REMOTE_ADDR} !^123\.123\.123\.123$
RewriteRule .* - [F,L]

Or you could password protect your directory.

Please let us know if you had any further questions at all.
