 List of DC Comics Universes - Uncyclopedia
Due to numerous continuity errors, retcons and non-canonical storylines, the universe portrayed in the comic books of DC Comics had to be treated by writers and fans as a massive multiverse of universes to prevent the whole shebang from collapsing into a lump of gibberish and fart jokes.
Of course, the readers didn't like the result of the writers' actions, so the writers introduced the concept of Hypertime, causing every DC Comics story ever to be canonical and valid.
All current universe names were coined during the beer-fuelled DC Universe Naming Party attended by all DC writers.

Although the series was by definition a little formulaic, with the team unfailingly meeting up at the beginning of each issue, meeting up with adversity in individual chapters, then reuniting to achieve victory in the final chapter, the stories had a surprising degree of social consciousness, championing such issues as democracy, charity, tolerance and brotherhood.

 WORLDS OF THE MULTIVERSE
Over the years DC Comics had grown from its own beginning in Detective Comics and All-American, its universe had been doubled with the creation of parallel Earths and it was in the full steam of the Silver Age.
By this time the DC Universe or the Multiverse as it had become known was reaching critical density, the alleged continuity that we accept to day was much looser back then and much of it had to do with editorial structures.
From 1985 until recently the DC Universe had become a much smaller place, more Earth centric, all really ground breaking stories and tales were being told in the Vertigo imprint and those stories that pushed established fact were rendered out of continuity Elseworlds.

Note that in Marvel Comics, the concept of a continuity is not the same as "dimension" or "universe"; for example, characters like Mephisto and Dormammu hail from alternate dimensions and the Celestials from another universe, but they all nevertheless belong to Earth-616.
A Multiverse is the collection of alternate universes with a similar nature and a universal hierarchy.
The Omniverse is the collection of every single universe, multiverse, dimension (alternate or pocket) and realm mention in not only Marvel Comics but also encompassing DC Comics, Image, Dark Horse, Archie, Bongo Comics, and every universe ever mentioned or seen, including our own world.
