Agreed; the default phpmyadmin aliases are a very common attack point. 
VPN/private address space would absolutely be the best solution, but if 
that's not possible then on top of htpasswd authentication with strong 
passwords, some "security through obscurity" in changing the alias is 
probably not a bad idea to keep out the bot attacks.
