Why wasn't my hosting plan assigned a dedicated IP (BusinessClass)?

Q: I have a BusinessClass hosting plan and didn't get my dedicated IP when the account was setup. Why?
A: Unfortunately it is standard practice so that Arvixe's operation can comply with ARIN's regulations. IPv4 addresses are running out and are only assigned per request based on regulations.

So, remove your offer of free dedicated IP where ever it is offered.
What about paid-for IP's?

RESPONSE: Paid for IPs are setup on the spot as the customer has expressed the need for the IP upon their sign up. The only reason a customer may want a dedicated IP is for SSL certificate purposes (or in some rare cases, SEO). Therefore, per ICANN rules, even if we offer a plan with a dedicated IP included, it must be explicitly requested by the customer and a reason given for that IP (ie SSL, etc.). Please do some research on ICANN and the running out of IPv4 ip space to learn more about why this practice is mandatory.

That's not the only reason: if another user who's sharing the IP address is using it to send spam, then the IP address could end up on a BHL, preventing your legitimate emails from getting through. If the only person on your IP address is you, then you can't be BHL'd by someone else's actions.

That is correct but please note that our systems dont send mail out of the assigned by by default due to the fact that the IP requires a RDNS. However, you can request for this to happen and our staff will take care of it for you.

No, the content hosted on the other shared websites on the server should not have any measurable impact on your SEO rankings. Dedicated IPs do offer an added boost for site rankings, but I would recommend contacting an SEO expert for help in that regard, SEO metrics are a closely guarded secret and no one can really say for sure what minor items may or may not affect site rankings.
