Redirect people to the homepage after an referral link

Would you take a look into redirecting referral links to the homepage after the user clicks them, please? Using a link with a referral code (that shows up once the user visits it) seems like it might infer "ulterior motives" in sending people to Digital Ocean - and might present the idea that I'm recommending Digital Ocean so that I am getting "therefore perhaps it's not as awesome of a service" - but it is. Please redirect people to the homepage (remove the referral link from the browser's URL bar) after people click it.

    Thanks for the suggestion, now when someone clicks the referral link the URL is then redirected to just the homepage without the referral information. Thanks, Moisey

    Great idea. Two VERY successful companies in the WordPress Community, StudioPress & Gravity Forms, already do this.
