Is there a way I can block those regular users and only aloow me and my other administrators on this admin url link? Like any permissions/firewall rule I can setup? Now any one can access this link from the internet.
Please help.

Hello, 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. - Jacob
