Nginx - Blocking Access to Joomla Administrator and User Login

I propose blocking all access to Joomla's administrator login page and front-end user login (if you don't use it) because I constantly see a-hole bots in my logs trying to hack my site.  Add these lines to the Nginx site configuration.

# DENY ACCESS TO JOOMLA ADMIN
       location ~* /administrator.* {
       deny all;
       }

# DENY ACCESS TO JOOMLA USER LOGIN
       location ~* /component/user.* {
       deny all;
       }

Now how do you access the Joomla administrator login page??  Serve your site on another port using a simpler configuration, then setup your firewall to only allow your IP to access that port.
