How to Redirect domain.com/download to a URL

Sorry I am very new to this. I have a site on domain.com and I want to know the simplest way to 301 redirect either domain.com/download or download.domain.com to an external URL Can someone go in detail on how to accomplish this. Would be greatly appreciated.

I tried htaccess

RewriteCond %{Request_URI} /download/?$
RewriteRule ^ https://externalurlhere.com/downloadfile/1.0 [L,R=301]

But this doesnt work, am I missing a step?
