The traditional Unix command line FTP client accepts configuration in a file ${HOME}/.netrc which includes per-site sections. The sections include authentication information and macro definitions. The macro name "init" is reserved, and when defined, that macro runs on establishing connection. I do not have handy a feature matrix of graphical-UI FTP clients that includes "per-site scripted initialization" as a column, so I don't know how widely implemented the feature is. The arbitrary nature of an initialization macro makes it different from per-site preferred starting directory, which is in my experience universal, and was the most widely used kind of .netrc init macro back in the CLI times.

The question is if it is an accepted standard of FTP.
