The Newsweek network part 4: CruxialCIO

CruxialCIO.com is another news site with "2017 IBT MEDIA INC" in its footer.  The About page shows the address "7 Hanover Square, Fifth Floor, New York, New York."

The most recent stories on CruxialCIO.com are from September, 2015.  Here is the site's description:
CruxialCIO is a service for top business and technology leaders worldwide, delivering ongoing professional education in the form of practical information, analysis and advice on how to best use information systems to achieve organizational goals.
I had noticed last week that there were lots of websites beginning with "cruxial" using the administrative e-mail "domains@IBTimes.com," although none of them were activee.g. CruxialSales.com and CruxialCMO.com.  

The CruxialCIO.com domain is registered to Perfect Privacy, LLC.  The admin e-mail address consists of a random string of numbers and letters, followed by "@domaindiscreet.com."  However, the same e-mail address is assigned to nine other domains:  CrucialCFO.com, IBTMediaCorp.com, CrucialCEO.com, CruxialManufacturing.com, CrucialRisk.com, CruxialRisk.com, CruxialPharma.com, CruxialHealth.com, CrucialCIO.com, CruxialCIO.com.  

None of those additional domains are active.  According to Whoisology, the CruxialCIO.com domain is set to expire on September 9, 2017, and I'm curious to see what happens in the next couple days.  Will the registration lapse, or is there somebody keeping tabs who will renew the domain?
