Change your Joomla backend URL to protect your site.
Joom Backend Path Protector is simple plugin which add customized parameters (note, this parameter could not be all numbers) to the administrator url, which will prevent unauthorised visitors to access the admin panel without correct permission. If you configure the plugin to use “hello”, the url for your administrator panel would be: www.yourdomain.com/administrator?hello. Please notice you need to enable this plugin first after installation. You can fill in this parameter in the “Security Code” field of this plugin.
Also, in case if you or your website administrators forget the backend URL (or say forget the parameter added), we added a “Find backend URL back” function. This will be on www.yourdomain.com/administrator page once the plugin is activated with a customized parameter, on that page you or your website administrators can input one of the email addresses of this website’s administrators’ (or super administrators’). Then Joomla will send an email with the correct URL to that email address of the admin account you filled in.
This plugin now supports both Joomla 1.5 and Joomla 2.5, and will soon support Joomla 3.0.
