No, there is no such URL. Non-verified plugins must be downloaded via
web browser and installed manually via Tools > Plugins.

I think it's worth a new RFE against updatecenters/Pluginportal. It will
be a piece of cake to implement :) although using such Alpha Plugins
Update Center would be very dangerous as no particular quality will be
guaranteed which could impact stability of IDE significantly. We would
certainly not register this Aplha PPUC in the standard IDE distribution

Please provide a plugin portal update center URL which provides all the NON-verified plugins (for each NetBeans version one URL). It is not required to register those URLs in the IDE distribution.
