I would like to try to get particular low traffic .com domain. Its expiry date is three monts from now.
I would like to know your experience on that.
Any recommendation?

The present domain owner will have first right to renew but assuming that they choose not to then it is open season on the domain. As far as grabbing goes I've found SnapNames to be useful in the past, though I have heard good things about pool.com also.

This thread [webmasterworld.com] is very instructive.

the fastest so far that I have found is pool.com they usually get most of the domains first...

One way is to buy a snapback. But I never recommend personally. Unless you need the name at any cost and anytime.
