The DDOS attacks can put a heavy load on the server and the MYSQL database

You can deny access to wp-login.php based on the ip address if you don't allow visitors to log in

alternatively, you can use basic authentication

and deny access unless users have a username/password

you could create a generic user/password and display it on the blog or the login screen to allow visitors to login, but the bots won't see that.

That approach will work on a linux system using .htaccess.
