I am the only administrator of a singer server 18 client domain. What is the best way too ensure that the only user that can logon locally too the Domain Controller is the original administrator account created?

rename the admin and guest accounts, then create an account that only you have access to, and use it for the admin account

Whoops.  The reason I asked this question is I was able too logged in with what I thought was a normal domain user account.  I forgot that I had made them an administrator.  Thanks.

you're welcome. Be careful not lock down your DC too tight, you may lock yourself out, and that's a bad thing :)
