In your putty session, verify /etc/hosts is properly formatted, ping the hostname then nslookup the IP address that ping responds to. You may have to get the cloud image registered in Oracle's Cloud DNS.
The hostname for the EBS instance which got created using image from cloud is different and the web entry point for EBS url is different. This is as reference to the statement taken from http://www.oracle.com/webfolder/technetwork/tutorials/obe/cloud/compute-iaas/creating_ebs/01newinstall.html#section13
Section:-Configuring the web entry point
The statement says "Your Oracle E-Business Suite instance on Oracle Cloud is installed with an internal DNS name and a private IP address, so is not accessible from the public Internet. To make the instance accessible from the public Internet, you need to set the web entry point parameters in the applications context file to point to the
my Url for EBS is constructed using the public IP address of the EBS instance for example:
how do i add these to the etc/hosts?
and also how do i modify /etc/hosts using opc account. I am subscribed to free trial and don't have root account privs.
Here is the thing
Root can be accessed using sudo su. I then modified the /etc/hosts and pointed the public ip address of my instance
Public ip address-129-154-77-212
[oracle@dc55f6 APPS]$ cat /etc/hosts
127.0.0.1 localhost localhost.localdomain localhost4 localhost4.localdomain4

What would be the next approach in order to access ebs login page?
