Description

We currently use pfsense.org to host a file "j.php" which redirects requests to the appropriate (usually help) resource. For example, clicking the "Help ->FreeBSD book" menu item links to https://www.pfsense.org/j.php?jumpto=fbsdhandbook

We need to recreate this functionality on the netgate.com domain. The cleanest and more secure way to do this seems to be to setup a new subdomain, E.g.: redirect.netgate.com which will point to a new NGINX block on www.netgate.com The redirects provided will be synced with a file maintained in GitLab providing the ability to update the redirects without touching the server.

This redirect system will also be used to redirect the new user survey.
