"Should I install fail2ban on my droplet?" Yes.

Have you tried Googling this? A quick query found Tutorial: Securing Webmin. Webmin/Virtualmin has a big following; I'm sure there are plenty of other articles available via Google.

You'd prob. be better served by first doing a Google search, yourself; and THEN posting on here when you come across something you'd like help with. You'd then be in a position to cite to the info. you'd like help with, so that others on here can take a look at it first, so that they can offer educated assistance.
thanks for your reply @pablo, I don't go anywhere until I ask my dear google about my doubts,I think the mistake I did was I was searching for virtualmin instead of webmin. even though there is no how to steps to change the port no :10000 to something else.
As I am a nooob in linux it is very difficult for me to understand where about's of the linux commands etc.
What is found is the link where the similar thing is given as your link.

Changing default Webmin port to an uncommon one is also a good idea, here's a video howto,
