How do I create a redirect to an entirely separate domain name?

I want to create a subdomain that will contain a few redirect pages that I can use for referral codes (such as my Digital Ocean referral link), but I am not sure how to do that. I want to do something along the lines of ref.mydomain.tld/service, where “mydomain.tld” is my domain name and “service” is the service the referral code or referral link is used for.
