Normally it is something like
"ftp://username:password@ftpsite.com:portnumber". But remember FTP can
have Active or Passive connection (change default type in System
Settings), it can be encrypted (FTPS) or not, using different ports
then the standard and so on. You need to know exactly what the
FTP-server are using to be able to connect. I don't know what version
of KDE and Digikam you are using and that can make a difference to.
KIO could not use FTPS before, I don't know if it works now in latest

It took me five seconds to find the answer in Wikipedia, searching for FTP.
See more at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File_Transfer_Protocol
Specially the "Web browser support" section.
