How do I lock my domain so nobody can transfer out of here?
Unlike other registrars, we do not automatically approve transfers of unlocked domain registrations away from us. Therefore there is no need to 'lock' domains you have registered with DreamHost.

Whenever we receive a transfer away request, we email the domain owner and ask them to approve it via our "Domains > Transfer" area. If they don't approve it within 4 days, we automatically deny the transfer!

We keep the domains unlocked so that you can transfer them away yourself if you ever wish to do so without the extra step of unlocking them with us.
