This question was answered by @primdahl:

You can do it in nginx, but - for a less technically demanding solution you can also modify the index.html file in the mentor directory to look something like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
 <script type="text/javascript">
   window.location.replace("https://motorolamentor.zendesk.com/");
 </script>
</head>
<body>
</body>
</html>

Happy new year
