ESTA applications for those nationalities under the USA Visa Waiver Program

So I was applying for my ESTA again since I was making an impromptu trip after Japan to the States. As what most people do I a just typed in ESTA USA in Google search, took a cursory look at the search feed and saw that first links are actually not to the actual US Government Customs and Border Protection (CBP) site. It should be . The current fee charged is 17USD for Singaporeans if you apply directly on the CBP website and is a very straightforward process. Applying through an agency which appears on the top of the feed however can end up costing an additional 50-80USD in addition to the 17USD.
