The ftp command for this is "MKD" followed by the name of the directory.

However, if you want to avoid using ftp commands directly, a 
workaround is to create a small file using "put .... into url ...". 
This will create any directories that don't currently exist in the 
path to the file. Then you can delete the file if necessary.
