Is it possible to assign a different port to the Admin URL than is used by the customer site?

Our idea is to use firewall rules to prevent access to the Admin url from the outside world.  What other methods are used to protect the Admin functions?  I have read about Apache URL passwords and various php and htaccess configurations in this forum.  We will be doing our own hosting so we have full control over the server that will run our site.
